As a treat for Valentine’s Day, we brought flowers to residents of a local frail care home. As they interacted with the little ones – receiving flowers, inspirational magazines, and hugs – the smiles and joy on their faces spoke clearly “THANK YOU FOR CARING ABOUT US!”
“Could you come through right away please?” the voice on the other end of the phone asked. “We have flowers for you.” Upon arrival, we were amazed at how many lovely flowers there were – as well as small fruit trees, chili plants, and more! They will go to households and families across Cape Town; bringing a little extra joy into lots of lives!
Last month we distributed over five tons (5000kg) of fresh fruit and vegetables – thanks to sponsors and donors – to multiple centres! We did more than 35 different “drop-offs”, and many, many people benefited.
Donated computers, fax machines, DVD players, and office shredders went to this computer training skills centre. What a privilege to be a part of progress in this way! Our (and their) thanks go out to the donors!
