Little Simphiwe said his last goodbyes to his friends on Wednesday, 15th July . He is going into fostercare with the family who adopted his older brother when he was a few months old and is now 7 years old. (more…)
The Springbok men & women Sevens squad rolled up their sleeves on Saturday when they contributed their own 67 minutes in honour of President Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela. The players as well as Management visited the Christine Revell Children’s home where they interacted and played with our children. They were here from 9h30 – 11h00 handing over donations of food, blankets and books for the children and read stories to the children. (more…)
Shamiela Behardien, with her family and friends, have for the past few years given clothing to our children as part of their giving over Ramadaan (the month of giving to others less fortunate and sharing what you have with others). Thanks to donations from others, they come and visit the home and bring a new outfit for each child. When a child’s packet is opened, a staff member marks the new clothes to ensure they don’t get mixed up!
We are in need of car seats for our children when we go on outings, as the safety of our children is paramount to us. We are appealing to the community or corporates to assist us by either donating good quality second-hand seats or sponsoring new seats: we need approximately 10 for the older children and 6 for the small babies.
Our home has some supporters all the way over in Sedona, USA. These girls, Savannah and Zoe Van Block, held a fundraiser of their art work and 2 African exchange students helped out as well. They raised $250 which they donated to Christine Revell Children’s Home.
They recently visited South Africa, accompanied by their mother Sitara, and spent a day at our home interacting with group C children and did some art activities with them. A special THANK YOU to these students and their friends for making a difference and making our children feel special!
The St Aidan’s Ladies’ group have on occasion spent some time with our children before, and on 24th June 2015 they came and treated the children with some lunch: there were hotdogs, juice and some pudding.
The photos show some of the ladies busy preparing the food and some of them busy helping some of our regular volunteers to feed the babies and burp the tiny tots. (more…)
