Many parents have lost their income; Beudene understood their realities and did not expect payments from them. Yet, Beudene was committed to pay full salaries to their staff during the whole lockdown period. So many of the parents graciously continued to pay their fees and support our staff without receiving any services. We are forever grateful for those who supported us during these uncertain times.
The doors opened again on 24 August 2020 and we welcomed 30 learners during the first week. Beudene received assistance from the school of nursing who placed eight students at Beudene. They were a great help with the daily protocol and sanitizing of the facilities twice a day. These students ensured that our learners got more personalized attention than ever before!
