Newsletter - August 2016Highlights from the last six months
We have appointed our first part time staff member. She assists with Educare and Bible lessons and attends meetings on our behalf.She is our first hand contact to monitor the well-being of foster mothers and their children. She is in the process to write her final social worker exams and we hope to use her knowledge to the full in the future.
Thanks to you our donors, we could support 16 children with school clothes and stationary for the new school year. Your faithful support continue to enable us to help vulnerable children with food, gas and electricity.
That is love in action. We are blessed.
April School Holiday Outing
Volunteers and carers took 16 children to Monkeytown during the April School holiday. For some of the children it was their first encounter with live snakes and slippery reptiles! You can just imagine the excitement and fun the children had watching the monkeys and learning about these interesting wild animals!
Joya Homes buys first property
Joya Homes have signed the contract for our first property in Broadlands. Broadlands is a lovely neighbourhood with space for children to play and schools close by.
We are very excited for this new season we are moving in and grateful for this big donation. We have been supporting foster homes since 2010 but having our own property will help us reach more children in a more effective way. We hope the new foster home will be running towards the end of 2016!
Will keep you posted on building progress in our next newsletter and the fantastic operational model we plan to follow!
