Haven manager Lynette Erusmas says the centre caters for 30 abandoned, abused and neglected babies and toddlers.

Pretoria-based NGO New BeginningZ is a haven for abandoned children living and working on the streets.

As part of Dis-Chem Foundation's 'Random Act of Kindness' initiative, New BeginningZ is the proud recipient of R120, 000 in a store account to purchase nappies, formula and medication.

Bongani Bingwa chats to haven manager Lynette Erasmas and Dis-Chem Foundation Sherry Saltzman.

Erasmus says the organisation houses 30 abandoned children.

Our work is to do early intervention and rehabilitation to get the children back into society either through family reunification, adoption or foster care placements.

Saltzman says what stood out for her when she visited the foundation is the love in the haven.

The carers in this home truly love these children and have a special bond with these children. The Dis-Chem Foundation is giving the haven R120, 000 in a store account to purchase nappies, formula and medication.
