Helping Hand members participated in two runs last week; a 15km (Dan Luyt) and a 42km. (Red Hill) Both were a success, with everyone enjoying the camaraderie, exercise, and completion of their goals! (Hebrews 12:1-2) Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
As often as possible, we bring supplies of fresh food, as well as non-perishables and other goods, to this centre for paraplegics and quadriplegics. This time it was meat, cheese, bread, as well as fresh fruits & vegetables. God bless the residents for their genuinely positive attitude in the midst of their physical struggles, and the staff for their hard, faithful work.
Here you see Lisa with a load of fresh food, which will be sorted for soup kitchens, quadriplegic centres, and parcels for the homeless.
A company called us to collect a donation of a van-load of plastics – bowls, containers, trays, and more. We are grateful for their support; knowing how many will benefit from these items!
The children of Helping Hand helped show gratitude for the waste collectors and the job they do by giving them each a bag with food essentials. (as well as extra goodies) We’ve seen proven that a little love goes a long way to encourage and help others, and learning to care for others is important for the kids.
HIV/AIDS and TB patients were happily surprised to be given bread and polony to eat while they waited at this clinic.
The youth helped pack 100 parcels of bread and polony for distribution. Many hands make light work!
