Kids Haven’s vision is to rehabilitate children living on the streets and reintroduce them into society. They celebrated their 20th anniversary last month and Y&R partnered with them to help them bring their celebration to life. The occasion was marked by a party for the children at the Shelter and Children’s home and a Gala dinner at Emperors Palace for 400 stakeholders.
Founder and Managing Director: Kids Haven, Moira Simpson commented on the milestone event, “We feel honoured to do this work. It is a privilege. We were in the right place at the right time 20 years ago and, it was always simple; the children deserved to be cared for, and that is what we did.”
In addition, Debbie Greve, one of the organization’s fundraisers commented, “The event was a great success … and we are MOST grateful for all the support that we received from Y&R”.
