In December 2020 Elize and Cayla visited  Rainbow Cottage at St Francis Care Centre to hand our gifts and groceries. 

On 14 December 2021, we went back to Rainbow Cottage in our capacity as the Uzwela Foundation and this time, we were able to give even more presents and spread more happiness amongst the kids and staff. We are so grateful for the donations we receive from our generous corporate donors, which allowed Uzwela Foundation to expand on the charitable work we started last year.

Elize van Eeden, our ambassador Cayla van Eeden and volunteer, Brandon van Eeden spoiled the 34 children with gifts and sweet treats. On arrival, we were greeted by the cutest little kids, super excited and very energetic! Thank you Cayla and Brandon, for entertaining the kids.

It was a great day with many happy kids and big smiles. To us, this is what giving is all about – seeing absolute joy on children’s faces.
