There are a variety of ways to support NONA Child Development Centre and this event.

  • Donate
    Donate today and support our children with special needs
  • Sponsorship
    There are many children in our community with special needs who can use a little extra help and guidance from trained professionals and a dedicated staff. Everyday NONA’s staff works with children and their families to provide just that.


The Covid-19 pandemic has made a huge impact on our charity. NONA is immensely grateful for the support during the pandemic, without this our doors would not be open today. However, this support only takes us so far and we need your support, the support from our community, to continue to provide our services. as we struggle with additional Covid-19 expenses we also need updated technology and pediatric equipment – to name a few of our more critical needs.
