As we continue to celebrate Women's month, and the valuable contributions made to our world by girls and, women, Toys R Us South Africa reached out in support of the Wylie House Child & Youth Care Centre in Berea, Durban.
Remaining committed to the development of youth throughout the country; Toys R Us SA turned their attention to Durban’s oldest orphanage and “girl’s only” facility, in an effort to inspire hope.
Wylie House, a haven, which cares for girls aged three to eighteen years old, shelters youngsters believed to come from a background of either neglect or abuse.
The Toys R Us team, known as TRUpers, have pledged their support to the organisation, committing to “add their magic” to projects they feel are most deserving.
“Women’s Month gives us an opportunity to reflect on the need to improve the plight of women, especially the youth in our country. We are sincerely grateful to be given the opportunity to engage with Wylie House and understand the challenges these youngsters face daily. We hope that our contribution adds joy and cheer to their days,” says Nicole Jansen Van Vuuren, marketing manager Toys R Us & Babies R Us SA.
Fulfilling their wish list, the enthusiastic Toys R Us team donated various toys and games, including outdoor play sets, puzzles, board games, dolls and creativity packs.
“We are most appreciative of the toys received. Our girls are limited in terms of exposure to the various play sets and games available and this is a wonderful start,” says Nazli Finch, head at Wylie House.
