Children in Missionvale township
Another three months have passed and your generous contributions have ensured that our Nutrition and Wellness Unit could continue providing essential food items to families desperately in need.
It never ceases to amaze us how much impact the nutrition makes on the community. In many instances the food becomes a great incentive for attending skills development / educational programmes! This has a tremendous positive effect on the community as they are learning skills that will empower them going into the future, and many of our HIV patients that used to be very weak, are starting to gain strength! This is so important as the effects of HIV have hit our area harshly. There is a definite increase in the number of child headed households and granny headed households in Missionvale. As a result, the children are not in school and so the cycle of poverty continues.
We are so grateful to you for contributing towards providing nutrition for these families and giving them a chance in life! Once you meet a person at the point of their need, you can grow the star in each one. Because of YOUR help, we have many stars shining in Missonvale!
With gratitude and love from Sister Ethel and all of us in Missionvale
