The Dental Warehouse volunteers teamed up with the Easter Bunny to bring smiles to the faces of children in two local orphanages.

On April 18, 2019, Henry’s Angels, a group of volunteers from The Dental Warehouse, one of the leading South African based distributors of high-quality health care solutions to dental professionals in private practice and state health facilities, visited the New Jerusalem Children’s Home and The Village Safe Haven orphanages to team up with the Easter Bunny to deliver more than 1,000 Easter Eggs and a lot of joy to orphaned, abandoned and abused children around Midrand.

The New Jerusalem Children’s Home was founded in 2000 by two sisters, Anna and Phina Mojapelo, established in 2000 with the help from volunteers, government, corporate, and private donations. and has sheltered more than 1000 children since their beginning as a place of safety for abandoned and abused, orphaned and vulnerable children. These children also find a place of safety in The Village Safe Haven, a Group Foster Care Facility that also takes care of those children suffering from HIV/AIDS. The organization firmly believes that every child in need deserves a home and aims to offer love and quality care to children.

“I am very proud of the team working so hard to launch Henry’s Angels and this volunteer initiative,” said Leigh Spamer, Sales and Marketing Director, The Dental Warehouse. “They want to play a little part in helping to make underserved or seriously ill children smile again and to improve their lives, even in just a small way and we have already begun work to identify the next Henry’s Angels activity.”

This Easter activity was the first project of The Dental Warehouse team of Henry’s Angels, which was formed to create a lasting programme of volunteerism and service that gives back to the local community. Henry’s Angels believe that time is the most valuable commodity they can give and together they can make a big difference.
