Amanzimtoti Child Welfare appeals for help after second break-in

ONE suspect was caught after the second break-in at the Amanzimtoti Child Welfare on Wednesday night, 23 June.

The Toti Welfare continues to appeal for laptops, tablets and computers – new or old – to replace those stolen.

This is the second break-in the Amanzimtoti Child Welfare experienced in a week, the first being over the long weekend between the 16 and 19 June.

For the first break-in, the intruders cleverly disarmed the alarm system without alerting the security company. They made off with the charity’s seven laptops, laptop bags, memory sticks and food items, including ingredients for the cooking and baking project.

Less than a week later, a second burglary occurred. Fortunately, the intruder set off the alarm and Chubb, together with the Toti SAPS managed to arrest him. Nothing was stolen but great damage was caused to the welfare’s property.

“The burglar practically messed and destroyed everything he could,” said Poovan Naidoo of Amanzimtoti Child Welfare.

Chubb’s Nicholas Padayachee admitted that this second burglary wasn’t necessarily undertaken by the same criminals as the first.

The Toti Child Welfare is desperate for any assistance the community can offer. Laptops or computers – old or new – would be greatly appreciated. Food, memory storage devices and laptop bags are also desperately required. Funds are also needed for the installation of a higher security alarm system.

If you are able to assist, contact the Amanzimtoti Child Welfare on 031-903-5171.
