Supported with a generous grant towards the cost by the H & J Visram Foundation. The conditions at the home were very poor in terms of hygiene, social facilities, food preparation and latrines. Refurbishment included two new pit latrines, bathrooms and showers, eight renovated bedrooms and beds with mattresses, improved social space with chairs and a TV, a renovated kitchen with modern fire stoves and a small office for the centre manager. The residents can now call this 'home'. There is further work to be done on remaining 10 bedrooms.
