At the donation ceremony, the Chinese Ambassador Tian Xuejun said that the children's lovely face warms him in the chilly winter, and he quote former President Nelson Mandela as saying that "Children are our most precious treasure".
"The Chinese Embassy comes to visit you in the Children's Village. But from a large perspective, we are all together living in one global village," Tian said.
"I also bring you solar geysers from China to help make your life more comfortable," the ambassador said, adding "the Chinese people hope to work together with our South African friends to make our village a better place."
Bongi Ngema-Zuma, wife of South African President Jacob Zuma, said these solar geysers were the same model as she used at home and she used the system for four years without any problems.
She believed this kind gesture strengthened the close ties and friendship between China and South Africa. She also took this opportunity to donate a computer and a printer to the Children's Village.
Children's Village officials said that the village has been providing accommodation and education to children for almost 31 years, and just like any real families, the village struggles hard to save money, and this donation would help them save a lot of expenses.
