Wettstein Family Visit

In February 2017, Marcel Hoogebeen brought a Swiss family to visit Christine Revell Children’s Home. The Wettstein family gave us a generous donation to be used towards computers or tablets for the children for educational purposes. In addition Jonas, the little boy, contributed R1,000 of his pocket money to the Home!
