Children in Alexandra Township recently received a generous donation from Sandton City as part of the CentreÂ’s ongoing charity initiatives. The 143 children and caregivers from Banakekeleni and Abangani E Nkosini were delighted with essential toiletry packs delivered to the homes

Sandton City Provides the Basics


“Personal hygiene is very important when it comes to building healthy esteem levels,” says Sharon Swain, Centre Manager at Sandton City. “The children in these homes often do not have access to basic toiletries and we hope that this donation will go a long way in building their confidence levels and measurement of self-worth.”

The toiletry packs included a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, roll-on and a tub of Vaseline.

“Children by nature are curious and explore their surroundings vigorously, often encountering a host of germs that could encourage ill health,” notes Swain. “Our hopes are that the children can now enjoy discovering their environment whilst maintaining healthy personal hygiene levels.”

Sandton City Helps the Young and Old


Banakekeleni, meaning ‘take care of them’, is a hospice and Aids orphanage that cares for infected and affected children and adults. Abangani E Nkosini is a centre of care for orphaned and vulnerable children, the sick and elderly. They provide social support, encourage rejuvenation in the community, take on social responsibility and engage in basic, broad based economic empowerment from Sandton City that spreads into the Alexandra Township.
