In support of the Princess Alice Adoption Home, a facility of Johannesburg Child Welfare which provides safety for up to 30 babies at a time, Thompsons Travel volunteers at the facility helping to ensure each baby and toddler receives the affection needed for them to bond with others, as well as engaging in stimulating activities.
Thompsons Travel has done much for St Anne’s Home, which offers a sanctuary for abused women and children and provides relevant opportunities that consciously involve them in their society and cultivate a mature perspective on what it means to be a part of a community. Besides providing donations, excursions and transport, Thompsons Travel employees regularly volunteer at the facility’s crèche, meaningfully contributing to the organisation and the lives of its resident moms and children.
For Mandela Day, Thompsons Travel brightens up local schools through the Bookshelf Project, in which we paint bookshelves and desks. We join forces with Avis to support the PINK Initiative in aid of breast cancer, and, jumping in to raise money for CHOC, we take part in the annual Midmar Mile swim race.
In Durban, the Thompsons Travel Staff make weekly visits to the Durban Child and Youth Care Centre, which is responsible for the care of 82 orphaned and vulnerable children, who depend on the generosity of the local and wider community to support the work they do. Together they raise these children to be happy, healthy and successful adults. Our team do weekly visits to the home and donate their time to activities with the children, including arts and crafts and playing games as well as contributions to stationery & uniforms.
