St. Martin’s Centre, as it’s affectionately called, is a Non Profit Organisation run by the Brother Dominic Chihota and his team. It is about 12 kilometres from Springs town; it takes care of about 300 children between the ages of 4 and 17, whose parents have been infected by HIV and some kids living with the virus. A good number of the kids do not fall into any of these categories but are just vulnerable. It has 40 working staff of whom some are care-givers, cooks, administrators, gardeners and a driver. Brother Dominic Chihota, OP is the director of the centre and works every day of the week since the programme runs throughout the week.
On Wednesday the 9th of December, the centre organized a Christmas party for the kids who visit the centre. The day begun with the celebration of the Mass by Fr. Chaka Montanyane OP. The rest of the activities proceeded afterwards; the kids were entertained by music and dance, drama, food, drinks and were also given miniature hampers as Christmas gifts from the centre. Although the centre has gone into recess for the year, activities still go on but not full time.
