Industroclean Supported Charities
 “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give” – Sir Winston Churchill

Poverty levels in South Africa have doubled in the last 10 years, and at least 25% of the population rely on welfare.

In light of this Industroclean has embarked on a charity drive to donate chemicals, cleaning aids and the practical assistance of Industroclean cleaning specialists to some of charitable organizations in Gauteng. This initiative has been undertaken in an attempt to enhance the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.

CHOC Childhood Cancer Foundation is a country wide voluntary organisation.  It brings together the parents of children who suffer from all varieties of cancer or life threatening blood disorders. Funds raised are applied to directly benefit the children and their families, and also those involved in the treatment of these most serious illnesses. 

The goal of this dedicated group is to improve the welfare and quality of care for children with cancer. The organisation provides direct practical help to children with cancer, from diagnosis onwards, recognising the inevitable disruption to family life when a child faces vigorous and often lengthy treatment.

The name CHOC (an abbreviation of “Children’s Haematology Oncology Clinics”) was used by the first local parent group, established in 1979.  In 2000 a new national organisation was formed, linking parent groups in all parts of the country.

GIRLS & BOYS TOWN

Creating opportunities for youth to grow and develop into responsible citizens, able to contribute to family and community life in the spirit of peace, dignity, tolerance, equality and solidarity  with others. The name Girls and Boys Town is synonymous with the peer-group system of self-government – a unique concept where youngsters are significantly involved in decision-making concerning their own affairs.

Under the guidance of adults, the kids actually govern themselves, electing their Mayor, Councillors and Managers who make the rules and see that they are kept. This capitalises on the teenage desire to be admired and respected by their peers, forges great leadership skills and instills responsibility and values for life.

There are eight registered Children's Homes – four large Youth Development Centres and four community 'family' homes –  which offer residential care to children whose own families cannot cope and who don't do well in foster care.
 

HOSPICE

Hospice provides care for the terminally ill people with their gentle care, kindly words and expertise in managing difficult symptoms like pain.
