Bertling Logistics South Africa donates Christmas party packs to Kids Haven

Situated in Benoni within the Ekurhuleni Metro in Gauteng, Kids Haven operates across two sites, with the main center catering to older boys aged 12 and above. This central hub, located in Cranbourne Avenue, Benoni town, is complemented by the administration building and a community preschool. Additionally, the organization has six houses in the nearby Mackenzie Park North suburb, where younger children and older girls find a nurturing environment.

Founded in October 1992 by Moira Simpson, Kids Haven emerged in response to the growing number of children living on the streets of Benoni and the tragic deaths of two of these children. Before the formal establishment of the center, Moira had been actively engaged in providing food and counseling to children on the streets. Recognizing the need for these children to transition off the streets for genuine healing to take place, she set out to create a dedicated space for their rehabilitation.


In a heartwarming display of community engagement, Bertling Logistics South Africa recently made a meaningful contribution to Kids Haven's cause. Visiting the Kids Haven facility, the Bertling Logistics team was impressed by the impactful work being undertaken by the organization.

Driven by a commitment to make a lasting difference in the lives of these children, the Bertling Logistics team collaborated with the Kids Haven staff to identify areas where they could add value. Recognizing an immediate need for Christmas party packs, the team embraced the task with enthusiasm, turning the preparation of the party packs into a joyful team effort.

On December 1st, the Bertling Logistics team returned to Kids Haven, delivering 150 Christmas party packs. The team was so grateful, and they shared their gratitude below. Bertling Logistics South Africa remains dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of those in need, exemplifying the spirit of giving during the holiday season. 

The plan is to continue to play our part in contributing to under privileged communities, especially where children are affected.
