Our Objectives Are To:

• Provide primary healthcare to the community through a mobile clinic – the clinic caters to major health needs of the community
• Encourage big thinking….anything is possible
Lee den Hond the founder of the organisation grew up in Pretoria. She started her epic fundraising journey to build the centre by becoming the third South African woman to summit Mount Everest in honour of the cause.
“My journey to the top of Everest was, in part, to satisfy my quest for adventure – but I knew I wanted to make this experience greater and do it to benefit others. With this driving force in mind, I set the goal of building the children’s centre” Lee den Hond
Building of the centre started symbolically on the second anniversary of Lee’s Mt. Everest Summit. Ground was broken on the 19th of May 2015 and the centre was completed on the 5th of December 2015.
