Welcome to the Komati Care Centre.

We are a registered non-profit organisation (Registration Number 053 – 765 – NPO) established to feed vulnerable children in the Orlando township, South Africa. The children we help are from a community much in need of help to overcome poverty. We have established a school to provide nursery and pre-school education, which combined with the feeding programme, offers the opportunity for a positive start in life to these children.
