KUNGWINI WELFARE ORGANISATION
The land on which Kungwini Welfare Organisation is situated was donated by the late Dr Arrie Jungnickel to the Cripple Care Association in 1976. After realising the shortage of available care facilities for adults with disabilities the family donated portion 214, Zwavelpoort with the exclusive condition to build a care facility for adults with disabilities. Paul Jungnickel Home was opened in May 1983. August 1995 it was decided that Paul Jungnickel Home will become independent from the Association for Persons with Disabilities: Gauteng North and the process was completed in March 1996. The organisation went from strength to strength in the following years and in June 2002 Kungwini Welfare Organisation was established as the umbrella organisation for the services offered by the organisation that included Paul Jungnickel Home, Community and Social Work Services and Kungwini Early Learning Centre. Today Kungwini Welfare Organisation is proud to facilitate, Paul Jungnickel Home & Paul Jungnickel Home Senior Medical Care and Residential Facility, Activities & Protective Workshop, Social Work Services, Kungwini Early Childhood Development Centre, Tshwenyega Clinic, Brown Eye Care Optometrist, Second Chances Donation Shop and the Nickel Christmas Market.
