“Centurion Hospice is located in Lyttelton, Centurion and serves the communities of Centurion, Midrand, Laudium, Olievenhoutbosch and surrounding areas. We provide palliative care including symptom and pain management, grief and bereavement support through a team of professionally qualified nurses and social workers.”
House of Gideon
“The main purpose of House Gidoen Foster Home is to provide security and stability to traumatized children who are victims of abuse and neglect. We take these children in and care for them in a setting that is as close as possible to a normal family structure. Here they can attend school, do homework, play sport and learn to be a child. They also receive support in the form of therapy and unconditional love which provides them with the opportunity to experience stability, and to learn to trust others again.”
Belinda Barthram de Magalhaes and Nandoux Vermeulen on behalf of Veritas Rekenmeesters – Accountants CC went to Centurion Hospice and House of Gedeon to make the donations. We would like to thank everyone who made this possible and for the opportunity to give back to the community.
Veritas Rekenmeesters – Accountants CC has also been donating to Solidariteit as well as Radio Kansel for the past 10 years.
