Newsletter 1

NEWSLETTER 1 January 2009


Since August 2008 we visited approximately 78 families living on the farms just along the Bapsfontein road alone.

We were shocked at the home-situations of the children. They suffer with hunger, are generally uncared for, not going to school, do not have birth certificates and are abused in many other ways.

We managed to secure 18 of birth certificates as well as 34 ID books for the caregivers.

Pre-school Care Centre

In God’s incredible provision the farm school on our farm (Hugo and Melanie Prinsloo) closed down in December 2008. We were able to do basic renovations and equipping of the centre, which enabled us to register 23 children on the 12th of January 2009. We pick them up in the morning and drop them off around 4pm in the afternoon. The children receive 2 meals per day and an occupational therapy program is followed, to help with their development.

Afterschool Centre

Schoolchildren come to the centre after school. They receive a meal and are then assisted with homework.
