dnata Newrest spreads Christmas cheer in Johannesburg

Earlier this month, Oliver’s House, a non-profit organization operating in Benoni on the East Rand, Johannesburg, celebrated a Graduation Party for the pre-school children as well as the 2014 Christmas Party.
dnata Newrest donated food, desserts, beverages, party packs and toys and clothes for the children.

Oliver’s House was founded in April 2001 as a soup kitchen in the Benoni CBD. In August of the same year the group formed a partnership with Nomthandazo Children’s Care Centre in the Zenzele informal settlement in Daveyton. In 2004 Olivier’s House purchased the old Benoni Home Affairs building re-located. That same year it opened the education and computer training center at offices on
 Woburn Avenue. 

In 2006 Olivier’s House took the first step towards creating a socially self-sustaining project (Oliver’s Village) when they purchased 11 acres of property in Putfontein, next to the Zenzele informal settlement. Today Olivier’s House manage five social projects.

"dnata Newrest is proud to be associated with Oliver’s House and to support in any possible," said a release from the catering company.
