Absa donates to local children’s home


Absa Bank

JOHANNESBURG – ABSA’S Business Bank said it would contribute over R100 000 per year in cash and kind to the Orlando Children’s Home in Soweto over the next three years.

Oscar Siziba, Gauteng Provincial Head of Absa Business Banking, said the financial firm intended to continue making a difference in the communities in which it operated.

“We believe that by creating a better living and learning environment for the children of Orlando Children’s Home, we are creating a force for change in this community,” he said.

The home, which looks after children who have been abandoned by their parents, will receive assistance with educational and developmental
initiatives in addition to financial support.

The home looks after 60 children, ranging in age from a three-month-old baby to a 20-year-old.

Absa’s relationship with the Home started in April this year.

So far this year Absa has donated a new jungle gym to the Home.

It has also rebuilt and replaced old and derelict parts of the residence and set-up a complete irrigation system to support a sustainable vegetable garden.
