For those of you that have visited Zanokhanyo you will know that their living space is a major challenge. The home was in desperate need of a proper kitchen – the one that was in the house was too small for their needs and did not even have a stove. Thanks to Platypus Productions, Zanokhanyo now has a fully customized kitchen container. It’s a beautiful 12 metre container with a double sink, pantry, electrical plug points, counters and cupboards. The kitchen was customized by Big Box Containers and then delivered to Zanokhanyo on 18th August 2010.

Platypus hosted a wonderful creative Staff Community Project day facilitated by heart on 20th August 2010 in which their staff came out for the day and painted some wonderful animal murals on the container, played games with the children and hosted a luncheon for the home. It was a lot of fun and the children loved the interaction with the staff. They even got to paint their handprints on the side of the container.
The kitchen has made such a huge difference to the home in terms of having somewhere safe and big enough to prepare meals, do the laundry and store their food and linen safely. A big thank you to Stan, Ian, Dinisha and the team at Platypus for their kindness and SUPER GENEROUS donation.
