A new food garden for orphans

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.

Healthy Food for the Fikelela Children

 

SInce many of our children are HIV positive it is very important that we give them fresh organic vegetables. Thanks to Urban Harvest and Shell  we have been able to upgrade our Veggie Garden. From a feeding ground for weeds, the volunteers came and transformed our garden into a harvest wonderland. From vegetables and herbs that will provide our children with needed nutrients to grow strong and healthy and assisting with rehabilitation, to vegetables and fruits that will provide us with yummy harvest all year long. Cabbage, carrots, beans, grenadilla, herbs, spinach, pumpkin and more. They even provided the proper irrigation and a compost system ensuring the upkeep of the garden long after they have gone.

The vegetables are starting to bloom and we are ready to harvest and the garden has an abundance that the children will enjoy picking and eating free of harmful chemicals.
