South Africa, Ivory Park
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and yet alas many will be left feeling desperate due to poverty. Families living in poverty are too often excluded from celebrations of the festive season. They look on unheard and unseen by many! No matter what you do, volunteering is a selfless act that will help transform the lives of many people over the holiday season, do your bit! We did at Ivory Park this Saturday!
We spent the day with our children enjoying games, face painting, drama, fun and a feast fit for Royalty! What a joyous celebration not sure who enjoyed it more the little kids or the big kids(US). Our kids received a sumptuous meal, goody bags with care products and eats, Christmas hats, chips, fruit juice, sweets, pastries, cakes and story books for everyone! Everything was in abundance!
Act SA team had a memorable day on Saturday 30th of November Year end party was organized for over 400 children from township of Diepsloot. Whole year, every Saturday children from im-poverished background come for lunch and educational program and team made sure that they also have a party to remember.
Team gave it all to make as special as possible. So many people gave generous donations of food hampers, party packs, fruit, teddy bears, special vegan lunch was also prepared for kids, favorite macaroni and soya mince, cold drinks sponsored, ice lollies and ice cream too as well as cupcakes. Day started with music, dance and for little ones musical chairs organized by our team. There was a drumming session that everyone enjoyed so much.
It was such a blessing to be able to serve with a large group of volunteers and make this special for all the children.
