It’s a registered NPO with the Limpopo Department of Social Development, and for years, the volunteers have been serving the vulnerable children of Alldays. They provide food and a safe place for the youngsters to go after school. For many of them, this is their only meal for that day. Then came a wealthy Swedish national who promised to build an orphanage, on municipal land, to accommodate the children. Donations poured in from around the world, and a building was erected.

Their cries for help to the local Municipality have gone unanswered. Carte Blanche investigates.
