The most incredible act of generosity we saw was on Mandela Day!
The centre was a hive of activity when we saw 15 groups of up to 30 people come through the home. Some volunteered their 67 minutes in giving the buildings a fresh coat of paint on the outside and inside. Others used their time to organize a party for the kids and shoeboxes and lunch was given to every child.
We were blessed with party packs, cakes, toys, clothes, mobiles above cots, food donations and monetary donations as well.
A whole lot of love and joy was brought to the children as CEOs, Managers and Staff of businesses sung, danced and played with the children. Those 67 minutes really made a difference to our centre!
Thanks to a generous donor, we were able to put in an organic food garden for the Fikelela Childrens Centre, a centre caring for orphans and abandoned children, many of whom are living with HIV.
This garden will give them fresh vegetables to improve their diet and keep them healthy. Many of them are on anti-retrovirals so a healthy diet is extremly important.
The fikelela Childrens Centre provides short time residential care for children in need, nurses them back to health and places them back into the community with either extended family members or foster carers.
Thank you so much for caring and for making a difference!
Jerry Giraffe Sunday School Program
This inspiring Sunday School programme helps teachers to spiritually enrich the little ones, but also teach them life skills to equip themselves and also to care and Love each other.
The kids are excited and look forward to give Jerry his hug and to listen to the Bible story as well as the Lovemore Story every week.
– One teacher said “ I have never had little ones so eager to speak and answer questions before” The first lesson speaks of God’s Creation and one of the children raised their hands for the talking flower and said that “he is so happy that he and Jerry are part of God’s creation and everything that God makes is special”
In the next session they learn that because they are part of Gods creation there are parts of their body that are special and no body else must touch them there.
