In 2007 Montecasino pledged its support to a local children’s home, the Oasis Haven of Love Foundation, by taking the 11 children in the organisation’s care under its wing.

Last year Montecasino donated a luxury 14-seater vehicle, valued at R230 000, with air conditioning, safety features and a DVD player and 20-inch monitor to entertain the children on longer trips. The donation of the vehicle was made possible from the proceeds of Montecasino’s Duke of Edinburgh golf tournament.

Tsogo Sun’s CSI strategy stipulates that its five properties each adopt a home that provides care for children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS to make a significant difference in their lives.

“We are looking to be a partner that is fully integrated into the system of how the children’s lives are changed and managed within the respective orphanages and places of safety,” says Sizwe Jantjie, marketing manager of Tsogo Sun Gaming.
