Sinethemba Children’s Care
Hollywoodbets Korsten chose Sinethemba Children’s Care as their organisation of choice for Hollywoodbets’ Social Responsibility Programme. The team talks about their visit.
Sinethemba Children’s Care Centre has been operating since the late 1990s where the chairlady, Signoria, worked from a church hall in the town. She fed, attended to medical needs and provided for abandoned street children. Most of the street kids used to give birth under the buildings and left their babies. In 2001 she found two pre-fabricated houses which were vacated by the Korsten Police and approached the Department of Public Works to allow her to fix these vandalized buildings and take on housing boys and girls from the age of 1 – 18-years-old.
Mama Signoria is a true inspiration to so many as she herself was a street child with a violent past and through the grace of God her life was turned around and she was able to give back to those who found themselves in a similar situation as hers. Her life is dedicated to these street children and she does not know any other life than taking care of them.
