Love the Call 2 Care team xx
The iGardi Project is born at Unakho home for abandoned children
In Q1, Call 2 Care were set to make a difference at Unakho who cares for 33 orphaned children in Gugulethu. Although these children have no parents to call their own, Julius and Irene Bonang care for the children as if they were their own. They house, feed, wash and aim to find a loving family for these children. Thanks to the generosity of PPECB CSR initiative, the Call 2 Care team were able to implement our water wise vegetable gardens and have already completed 4 educational community workshops that focused on the olla pott irrigation method, square foot gardening, companion planting, pest management, all things cabbage family and vermiculture.
