Trellidor secures Children's Village

Trellidor has completed a security installation to protect the children living at Ingane Yami Children’s Village in the Shongweni Valley outside Durban. It is the second time the company has assisted the village, which is home to children left destitute by the AIDS pandemic.

“We secured the first three homes completed in 2012.  There are now five homes, with another four clusters of five homes planned for when enough funds have been raised,” said Trellidor Technical Field Manager Ryno du Preez, who was instrumental in the installation.

Each house is home to six children and a mother who has been carefully selected and trained to care for and love her new family.  In addition to the houses, there is a community hall, resource centre and offices.

Trellidor technicians installed Trellidor Cottage Guard burglar bars to most of the windows.  Bedroom windows are protected by Trellidor Retractable security, which can be opened and used as  an alternative escape route if there is a fire or some other danger.  Trellidor Retractable security gates were fitted to front and back doors as well as the public buildings.

Ingane Yami Children’s Village was initiated by Kloof Harvest Church and will eventually be home to 150 children.  The idea is to raise these children in a family setting rather than in an institution, remaining within their communities and retaining close ties to other family members if possible.

There are many items still on the wish list for the village, and as it is a non-profit project funds are always needed.  Anyone wanting to assist should visit the Ingane Yami Children’s Village website.

“We’d like to thank Patrick Royal, who took photographs of the Trellidor products as well as the children and their care givers free of charge,” said Ryno.
