GOOD MORNING ANGELS 11 OCTOBER 2017 (HUIS AIRFIELD/ENDEO/ROUNDTABLE/SPUR)


  

BACKGROUND:


House Airfield/EnDeo is a place of safety and home to nine children. This is one of about 50 such homes across the country run by the uMephi Child and Youth Care Centre.


Most of the children who live here have been through the legal system, because it is not safe or possible for them the live with their families. Some of the children do not have parents or family at all. Huis Airfield/EnDeo is home to children from ages 5 to 18. It’s a “normal” home with a house mother and an assistant who takes care of all 9 children’s needs.


They will live there until they have finishes school. Some children only stay at the home until custody and court cases have been concluded. The home receives a state subsidy of around R27,000 a month with which they have to cover all expenses including municipal bills, food, medical needs, clothing, transport etc.


The homes need support from the community for some of the daily needs and any extras, like home maintenance. House mother Cate Monaise knows her children very well. She helps with home work, makes sure they have what they need for the next day and goes to bed knowing they are loved. She commented, “all any child needs is love."
