A Dose of Care: PANADO® SHARES A DOSE OF CARE WITH THE BATHABELENG CHILDREN’S HOME
A house may have four walls and a roof, but Panado® believes a home is where the heart is.
Every single home, no matter what the type, shape or size, has the potential to be a haven for love, care and a family.
Through ‘A Dose Of Care’ journey, Panado® recognised and honoured Bathabeleng Children’s Home in Ivory Park.
The team at Bathabeleng Children’s Home, have been serving their community since 1996, with the sole mission of creating a safe and loving space for children to truly feel at home.
In July 2022, the Home experienced significant losses when a raging fire burnt down a section of the property – a dose of care is just what they needed!
Panado’s®’ ‘A Dose of Care’ campaign wants to share a dose of care with those who really need it. Together with the Afternoon Express, they’re sharing the work of do-gooders by lifting others and helping alleviate the poverty crisis gripping parts of the country through ‘A Dose Of Care’ journey.
Palesa Tembe, host of Afternoon Express, spent a day with the dedicated team of Bathabeleng Children’s Home and saw first-hand the selfless and generous efforts of each team member to help provide children with a family-based system of care.
Paying it forward can be as simple as nominating a person that’s heart and deeds speaks volumes of how much they care for others.
When asked to choose someone to receive ‘A Dose Of Care’ matched by Afternoon Express, Bathabeleng Children’s Home project manager Itumeleng Sehunelo proudly nominated Home director Petunia Mashifane.
There is nothing better than a mother’s love, and the children at the Bathabeleng Children’s Home will tell you that when it comes to Petunia, her love comes in abundance.
Petunia is the heart of the Bathabeleng Children’s Home and does everything from cooking to caring for the kids. She is the definition of putting the needs of others before her own.
With all that we have been truly blessed with, it is always important to lend that helping hand right back. There are so many unsung heroes who do so much without expecting anything in return, and that’s precisely what ‘A Dose Of Care’ is about.

As South Africans, we endure a great deal. There are so many unsung heroes who do so much without expecting anything in return, and that’s precisely what ‘A Dose Of Care’ is about.
