One of our donors, SA Gems, has recently patented a new method of marketing diamonds. The company has graciously included Globalgiving into its marketing campaign, as can be seen in the first photograph of a Cape Town jeweller in South Africa. The second picture shows the little girls of Shalom House,Tshepi,Kgatliso,Naledi and Thembi inspecting the the nearly completed Ester Hannah House, where the final installation of electrical and gas equipment is being installed in the open plan kitchen/ dining and living area. My wife, Peggy, has been busy knitting winter beanie hats for the girls of Rerfilwe. THe final picture shows Peggy witrh the girls of Shalom House together with their house mother, Maureen, all wearing their new winter hats. Sis Annatjie Cillier, the new house mother of Ester Hannah house is on the right of the picture.
