Unchain Our Children Paid Food Donation Forward To Care Home For Alzheimer And Dementia Residents

Wayne van Onselen, Founder and Executive Director of Unchain Our Children delivered a delightful food hamper, which was donated to UOC, to a care home for Alzheimer and Dementia residents in Pretoria recently.  It was received with gratefulness and joy by Magda de Wet, owner and Manager of the home who have more than 10 years already dedicated to the care of the elderly suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Most of the residents’ children and grandchildren have emigrated and they have entrusted their parents to the good care of “Wings of Time” located in Lynnwood Glen, Pretoria where they are surrounded by care workers who lovingly attend to them.

“Since the inception of Unchain Our Children, my main aim is to bring relieve to those who suffer, whether they are children or the elderly, in order to make a difference to their lives, wishing I could give to everyone all the time, but instead I have to carefully select where the need is the greatest at the time.  Unchain Our Children doesn’t store any donation, neither do we use it for any other purpose than to fill a need. We search our greater network and identify a particular care home, safe house, or family”, Wayne explained.

Magda, owner, and manager of “Wings of Time” is inviting the public to donate items like wool, art paint, games, and balls so she can continue to keep the residents busy during their leisure time.  High school outreach projects, where the senior learners pay a visit to the residents are welcome.  And occupational therapists who would like to spend some time with the elderly are also welcome.
