Dunoon home for the disabled gets a welcome helping hand

Elundini Home for the Disabled and Educare Centre has been operating since 2008 and has 15 caregivers caring for 150 pupils.

The Dunoon-based Elundini Home for the Disabled and Educare Centre received early Christmas gifts last week, putting a smile on the faces of the teachers and pupils.

On Wednesday December 12, they received toys, educational materials, mattresses and other gifts from New Age Engineering Solutions. New Age’s CEO, Poppy Zinyana said the situation at the school was very close to her heart as she also has a 22-year-old daughter who has a disability.

The day-care’s principal, Indy Kawana said she was very grateful to those who assisted them as her school often doesn’t have enough food for the children and educational toys.

“Our school is an inclusive one that caters to 150 children who have special needs and also able-bodied children.

“We take children who have disabilities from 1 to 18-years-old and able-bodied children from 1 to 6 years old.

“The equipment we received today will help us a lot in the coming year,” said Ms Kawana.
