Rising Sun Daycare in Duncan Village has been selected as the beneficiary for this year’s Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day in East London.
The children of Duncan Village are often left home alone and unattended while their parent’s are either at work or searching for work.
Witnessing the children playing in a nearby dump, Nozie Mswi took the initiative to start a daycare facility.
Rising Sun Daycare first opened its doors to children between the ages of 1-5 years old in January 2013.
“The daycare that is attended by at least 35 to 40 children, receives no financial assistance from either the public or the private sector,” says Taralyn Mclean, who volunteers her PR services to the home.
“Parents pay a small fee and that money is used to give each child breakfast and lunch,” says Nozie Mswi, the owner of Rising Sun Daycare.
“Some of the parents can’t always pay, but their children are always welcome and we make do with what we have.”
“After visiting Rising Sun Daycare, we realised that there is a real need for assistance and we could not have found a more deserving beneficiary,” says Dohné Damons, PR and CSI Manager at Algoa FM.
This year’s Algoa Cares Charity Golf Day, East London is themed, Music through the Ages.
The day of fun and golf will happen on the 8th of September.
“We encourage all sponsors to theme their designated areas accordingly,” says Ndileka Geysman, Marketing Executive at Algoa FM.
“We’re looking for a music hall of fame, a rock n roll theme and even the suaveness of a 90’s boy band. So be creative!”
