Kish Chetty, marketing manager of ABH, said all funds raised at the charity shop went towards easing their R420 000 deficit every month.
“We offer 24-hour nursing and health care to the elderly, mentally and physically challenged, children and victims of domestic violence. To do this, we employ 400 staff. However, because of staff pay increases, our deficit will increase to R520 000 in July,” said Chetty.
To ensure they have money for their running costs, the home recently opened a charity shop.
“We sell pre-loved and new clothes and shoes. In the interests of our residents, we separate the donations into sales to the public, and keep donations for the residents. We ensure everything donated benefits those we care for. We are currently running a campaign and ask the community and businesses to please donate clothes or shoes,” said Chetty.
