TRP Foundation » Leliebloem House
Leliebloem was founded in 1868 in Cape Town.
Today the non-profit Child & Youth Care Centre serves as a home-away-from-home for over 60 children from troubled families. These children, all between the ages of 4 and 18, have been removed by Child Protection Agencies from their primary caregivers and placed via the children’s court for specialist care and intervention programmes in Leliebloem House.
Leliebloem House is an organization held close to the Biden’s hearts for the past 35 years, and The Royal Portfolio looks forward to supporting the organization as it moves into another successful year.
The Silo Hotel staff do weekly visits to Leliebloem and through this they learn to interact in a loving and caring environment. We take along some educational and fun things such as colouring pencils, crayons and building blocks that encourage the kids to get creative.
The Silo is also involved with funding of various projects, food and basic supplies.
