Child Care

KZN CMD has three Child & Youth Care Centres. In these Centres we care for 470 children from all ages, races and religions. These children are placed in our care by means of a Children’s Court Order, because they were removed due to abuse or neglect or because they are orphans.

Our Child & Youth Care Centres are the following :



Human Rights Sports day for the Child and Youth Care Centres

Morester Ladysmith Child and Youth Care Centre hosted a Sport’s day and invited Malvern and Greytown Child and Youth Care Centres as well as the children from Morester Newcastle attended the day.

The enthusiasm was electrifying and the competition tough. Soccer, netball and cross country running were on offer. Each CYCC had teams to compete in the different categories. Like in all competitions, it is all about winning, but the day had an extra twist in the tail – the team which had the most participants in the cross-country running, could really pile up the points to decide the over all winning team of the day.

After all the adrenaline pumping stuff, it came down to the prize giving ceremony. The senior Netball winners were Malvern and Newcastle came second. The Senior and Junior Soccer  inners were Morester Ladysmith. The junior girl’s Cross country, gold medal winner was Sanelisiwe from Morester Ladysmith, and the junior boy was Siyanda also from Morester Ladysmith. The senior cross country gold medal girl’s winner was Rose from Morester Newcastle and the boy was Nkosana from Greytown. Well done, boys and girls! Last but definitely not the least was the over all winning team. Just look at the scoreboard and you will agree that the hosts, Morester Ladysmith, won hands down!

Congratulations and well done to everyone who took part and to each and everyone who cheered their teams on. A very warm word of thanks must go to the organisers, coaches, childcare workers and the kitchen staff who catered for everyone. Hopefully, sometime in the near future we’ll do it all over again!
