Vukani Educare Centre in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, caters for children with disabilities. Sadly, it has become an easy target for burglaries. The centre has been supported by the Rotary Club of Newlands since Founder and Principal Lindelwa Madikane started setting it up in 2006. John Petersen, owner of Trellidor Lansdowne, stepped up to help with physical security for the centre.
Graham Finlayson, President of the Rotary Club of Newlands wrote: “On behalf of Vukani Centre, an organization that provides services and facilities for severely physically and intellectually challenged children, and The Rotary Club of Newlands, we thank Trellidor for the significant CSI contribution to Vukani.
Our Club, supported by other funders, built the original rooms in 2006 and earlier this year we increased the capacity by adding additional rooms. Together this provides capacity for fifty children. Regrettably the facility has become an easy target for break-ins and theft. The alarm system proved inadequate as the intruders were able to leave the premises before armed response arrived.
Introducing the Trellidor barrier security will provide further discouragement to the criminals.”
John Petersen and his Trellidor Lansdowne team installed three Trellidor Retractable security gates at the centre. They will help protect the front door and two classroom doors from further break-ins, acting as an additional layer of security together with the alarm and armed response service.
