Current financial status
Durbanville Children’s Home cares for 144 children. An amount of R5 000 is needed per child per month of which the government only subsidises R2 177. Therefore the Home’s marketing team needs to raise R5 million in order to survive.
The following is an outline of our annual expenditure:
Food and clothing These include three balanced meals per day and take continuous donations of food products, for which we are very grateful into account. Without these donations, food costs would be much higher.
R 959 000
Therapeutic services This amount is completely insufficient and the need is much greater than the Home can cover given financial constraints.
R 518 400
Transport Children at the Home attend 26 different schools in order to adequately meet their individual scholastic needs. The maintenance of vehicles, insurance, driver’s licences and driving permits are included in this amount.
