Carpet a Creche Campaign

Diepsloot, South Africa

No more cold floors for winter

Every year we work to upgrade the crèches (childcare facility) in Diepsloot in some way. Most of the babies and toddlers take their naps during the day on cement floors, often with just a thin blanket underneath them. Most crèches have very little carpet.

Thanks to Cornastone upgrading their office carpet, we have so far been able to carpet six crèches, as well as our own Support and Counseling Centre. This is making a real difference to the lives of hundreds of children this winter.
