For the past five years, Sibaya Community Trust has been the sole donor for Childline KZN’s Crisis Line. In addition to generous donations, the Trust also funded the renovation of Childline KZN’s Crisis Line Centre to the value of nearly half a million rand.
Sibaya Community Trust has once again stepped in to help Childline KZN’s Crisis Line Centre for the next 5 years by donating a further R4 million to the Crisis Line.
In recognition of Sibaya Community Trust’s and their trustees (Tristan Kaatze, Vivian Reddy and Judge Vuka Tshabalala) generosity, the trustees unveiled a plaque which is in the Trust’s honour. The unveiling ceremony also marked the celebration of the renovated Childline KZN’s Crisis Line Centre.
The event took place on 18 August 2017 at Childline KZN’s offices in Morningside.
Childline KZN Operations Manager, Adeshini Naicker said, “Childline KZN reinforces that the fight against child abuse is a shared responsibility, which requires every person to take action. Sibaya Community Trust’s huge support has helped change thousands of lives.
“We thank Sibaya Community Trust for their generosity and for enabling Childline KZN to provide support to young, vulnerable children who are in crisis.
