Aurecon, acknowledging what an asset the centre is in the local community and the extent of their need, decided to support the centre by sponsoring two toilets and much-needed office furniture and paint for the centre’s newly constructed office, as well as kitchen utensils, stationery and treats for the vulnerable children the centre reaches out to.
A group of staff members from Aurecon visited the centre during April in order to transform it into a more liveable space. This included the manual preparation of groundwork for the installation of the new toilets; the assembling of the pre-fabricated concrete toilet structures; as well as the painting of the office walls and the assembling of new office furniture. The staff members also gave out party packs which contained treats for the children and prepared a huge braai for all present.
Mrs Nkabinde, the centre’s Project Manager, expressed her deep gratitude on behalf of all those at Masizakhe Sitjheje Isitjhaba. Reflecting on the afternoon spent at the centre, an Aurecon employee who participated said, “I truly enjoyed the physical labour put into this project, especially knowing that it was addressing a real community need! I also realised how doing small things can make an enormous difference.”
Mpungose concludes, “Aurecon is proud to be part of an intervention which has truly improved the lives of others for the better in practical and sustainable ways.”
