My husband Allan and I, we have been privileged enough to have traveled all around the world and we thought it would be a worth while cause to hold this event- BBQ Charity - that will benefit children that are currently being cared for at Melrose home during this up coming festive season.
Thank you very much to our family and friends, your kind support to this event will definitely light up their Christmas.
Melrose Home aims to nurture a supportive home away from home environment for its residents, and has the capacity to provide quality residential care for 80 disadvantaged children and teenagers between the ages of 3 to 18 years.
The Home requires a monthly average of about $120,000 for its operations and about 40% of this cost is provided by Ministry of Social & Family Development as a grant based on the number of children in residence.
However, the major part of the Home's operational costs is funded by donations from corporations, organised groups and well-wishing individuals.
Continued support from donors is needed to provide quality residential care and daily meals, therapeutic and developmental services, enrichment and recreational programmes, and facilities management for our residents.
