News about the 2 brothers

Share This Post

We bring back the story about the two brothers, 4 and 9 years old who started at COLT in January 2021, and share their current news. When doing admissions in the Hadji Ebrahim informal settlement their father had asked us to admit his children as he was unemployed and their mother had left the family and was living on her own. The brothers were spending the entire day in their shack without knowing where and when they were going to receive a meal, a bath or have a full nights sleep. The older brother who is very caring was looking after his younger brother. At the Educare they were regularly bathed and dressed in clean clothes, and meals were sent home with them every weekend.

The mother and father are now communicating with each other and in the process of obtaining documentation for the boys. The older brother is in Grade 2 at Heatherdale Primary School and his younger brother will remain at COLT in 2023 due to the instability in the family environment.

Teacher Nushfeekah assists the family by accompanying them to Child Welfare to make applications for grants.
