Safintra Roofing, one of the proud sponsors of this phenomonal project, attended the elite official opening of Africa’s first eco-friendly children’s home in Midrand, Gauteng. This incredible structure was the brainchild of Mia Anfield and Sean Wall of 4d and a Architects. The launch was attended by various stake-holders, media, sponsors and of course the little people themselves.
The New Jerusalem Children’s Home provides resindential care for abandoned, abused, traumatised, orphaned or HIV – positive children and vulerable youth from birth to eighteen years. The home was started in 2000 when two sisters, Anna Mojapelo and Phina Mojapelo came together and realised the desperate need in their surrounding community to provide shelter and protection for these children. Their aim was not only to give these children a home but also to offer them a future filled with hope. Initially the sisters opened their own homes to the youngsters, but today the shelter, a state of the art compound houses over 80 children.
We salute these extraordinary women and their very worthy concern!
