The Home held its AGM on the 22nd May 2013. We were graced and honoured by more that 50 people of the good will.
We appreciated and acknowledged the presence of His Lordshil, Rt Rev Bishop MP Dlungwana of the Diocese of Mariannhill and Priests, The Home’s Auditor Mr Hugh Strickland, the Social Workers from the Department of Social Development in Umzumbe Offices, the Occupational Therapist from Turton Health Care Centre, Principals of Local Schools and Educators, NGO’s, Umzumbe Local Municipality – Youth Desk, Local Business People, Community members, friends and neighbours Sacred Heart Staff and Children. It was a very fruitful meeting. Participants were deeply touched by the comprehensive report the Director of the Home Sr Tholakele Cele narrated and the presentations and entertainment items by the children. Comments from the floor were very positive and encouraging.
Indeed we were blessed and felt the support we got from all who attended. The Home’s financial situation was discussed at length and the public committed their support in this regard. New Board Members were nominated and with willingness of hearts they accepted to serve as Board members. We closed the meeting highly inspired and motivated.
