Ladysmith children caring for children in Bangladesh

‘Children Caring For Children’ is a project that aims to get as many schools involved as possible.

Egerton Primary, together with Miss Shereena Takoordeen, could not turn a blind eye to the pain and suffering the Rohingyan children are currently experiencing. Children from Egerton Primary School are getting involved and are supporting this campaign by giving a box (shoe box) of love.

They are encouraged to put together any unused or gently-used items of clothing, shoes, travel blankets, toiletries or diapers. Learners can also write a message of love, wrap the box and hand it to their educator.

The boxes and inventories will be collected and shipped off to Bangladesh.

Miss Takoordeen urges all schools, as well as the community at large, to come forward and help the needy children in Bangladesh. This is a completely non-profit, non-religious and non-political initiative.

“I pray that project ‘Children Caring For Children’ will grow from strength to strength and that we, as team Ladysmith, will grow into team KZN and make a positive impact on the lives of Rohingyan children,” says Shereena.

There is a drop-off box at Egerton Primary School.

If you are interested in donating items, then please go to the school and do so.
