Recently, the Dwaleni community was blessed with a new Life Centre. The new building is now fully operational. Due to this blessing, they were able to open a much needed creche’ for 40+ children and are charging only those that can afford it as a way to be self-sustaining and to serve their community. The Life Centre provides a hot meal to over 150 orphan and vulnerable children. Umalusi is focusing on investing into the children through reading programmes and equipping their care workers to be able to teach critical skills.
