Care Haven’s Wish List

Care Haven, as so many other organisations, has been negatively affected by the harsh economic climate at present. Despite the many challenges that we face on a daily basis Care Haven delivers and will continue to deliver an invaluable service to the community of Port Elizabeth and surrounding areas.

In order to continue rendering effective services and to provide the maximum care for our residents whom we serve, we most certainly cannot do it without your support.

Below is what we are always in need of:
