Heatherdale Childrens Home

Sponsor: Pfizer Nutrition

It was a hot afternoon on Monday the 30th January when 180 delegates from Pfizer Nutrition arrived at the Heatherdale Children’s Home in Athlone to paint murals on an immense stretch of vibrecrete wall; paint their large play structure & cut an expanse of lawn.

All kitted out in their overalls and gloves, the staff got to work under the leadership of 6-NEWKIDZ team members.

Pfizer blessed the children and staff at this Home with a scrumptious Nando’s burger & chips lunch while they kept working against the clock to finish on time.

The top management of Pfizer also rolled up their sleeves and constructed three 3m x 3m SABS approved Wendy Houses at a separate project and donated these at a function at the Blowfish Restaurant in Blaauwbergstrand to:

  • Noncedo EduCare in Mfuleni
  • Masizama Youth Cultural Group in Khayelitsha


The children from the Masizama Youth Cultural Group were very excited to perform at the restaurant for the Pfizer managers. They looked beautiful in their outfits, beads and facial paint and sang with all their hearts. Up until this day they had been practicing in the streets of Khayelitsha as they didn’t have a venue for this purpose but now they are the proud owners of a brand new, waterproof Wendy House.

A special word of thanks goes to Pfizer Nutrition for bringing joy to the children of Heatherdale Children’s Home; Mfuleni & Khayelitsha
