UBUHLE BEZWE CHILD CARE CENTRE
Ubuhle Bezwe Child Care Centre was founded in 2002 by Barbara Mthimkhulu, providing services to disadvantaged children and senior citizens. Ubuhle Bezwe is situated in Tembisa, South Africa, Gauteng. Today the home is legally constituted in terms of NPO Act of 1997 to provide a home to abused, homeless, neglected, orphans and abandon children.
Barbara saw children in the community suffering and took it upon herself to create a home for these children by providing a living shelter. Within 12 months, she discovered 42 children. It is Barbara’s ethos to help the community, provide for the needy children with love, safety and make them realise their dreams. Ubuhle Bezwe only takes children from 0-18 years. However, still has matriculated children who are still under Ubuhle Bezwe care. The total number of children to date is 48. Tipp Focus donated furniture which the Centre used as wardrobes and storage for the children’s essential items. Office desks were also donated that were used for a children’s library as well as their admin office.
