At SummerTime, children hold a special place in our hearts, they should be treated with love, care, compassion and gentleness. We make monthly contributions to different organisations who care for children in different ways.
SOS Children’s Villages: cares for orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children through home based care and community programmes.
A little bit of Magic into these lives on Mandela Day!
We had quite an afternoon yesterday. We arrived at the Hospital Hills settlement at around 3pm, it was cold and windy. Our children sat patiently in a line waiting for their treats to be handed out. Whilst we waited for everyone to arrive they sang songs filled with love and excitement for Mandela.
We were delightfully surprised when people started to show up with additional treats for the children. They were really spoilt with fruit, milkshakes, biscuits, cupcakes, juice, sweets, chips, lollipops, cupcakes and even an educational activity book! Well, it was a birthday party after all!
We bought 133 beautiful pairs of colourful Tomy Takkies and handed them out to the excited children.
It was a day filled with delight and surprises!
The Hospital Hills Weekly Feeding Scheme: feeds children from a specific location in the Lenasia South area.
Often all it takes is just a little bit of love, warmth and affection to change these children’s perception of the world. We make a constant effort in our daily lives to contribute to this change in perception.
