Newsletter July 2022


Our school kids enjoyed a 3 week long winter break with plenty time to play, socialise and learn a few new hobbies! Granny Rita and Gogo Sma taught a few kids to crochet and the boys started growing veggies in their newly homemade planter boxes!


Giving a child a pet is opening the door for lessons on taking ownership, responsibility, nurturing, loving and caring for animals and others. After a morning of interaction, dispelling the fear of animals and loads of fun the kids were gifted a hamster and have been tasked with taking turns to clean the cage, feed and play with her.


We have been making a concerted effort to create more and more opportunities for the kids to connect with the children of Musawenkosi Children's Home. It is extremely heartwarming to see these young friendships blossoming and to be asked when they will see their friends again. Last month we all watch the outdoor movie together and this holiday we joined them for a day during their holiday bible school.


Thank you to The Office Sports Bar, D.I.C.E, Pam Golding, Pepkor, Bidfood Empangeni and ALS Inspection for the donations and support. The food, toiletries, cleaning agents, clothing and toys are much appreciated!


We celebrated our twins 2nd birthday and a young fellow's 7th in July. Their absolute joy and delight at seeing their cake, gifts and being the centre of the attention makes every effort a pleasure! We especially love the community's heart in helping us spoil our kids in this way!


Dear friends

After a much needed break, loads of fun, plenty activities and learning new skills and hobbies our kids returned to school for the 3rd term. I know that the staff a grateful for the return to the usual routine and having 25 kids at home 24/7 is rather rowdy and chaotic!

Dawida, Wiebke and Vlentina, our 3 German volunteers, have left us after serving us for 10 months. They crept into the hearts of many and are dearly missed! They loved and cared deeply for each child and this will have a lasting impact in the lives of each child. Thank you for giving so unselfishly of yourselves to make a difference in our world!

Maths and English tutors:

Are you a teacher with a few hours a week to spare and a heart to serve? We have the need for extra lessons for a number of our primary school learners and would love to have you onboard!


Gift giving is a way to share our love and show our children how special they are to us. If you are keen to join us in spoiling a child for their birthday or this Chrismas please reach out to us.

Staff Appreciation:

Our caregivers care for the kids and love them as their own. To show them how much this means to us and the kids I would love to bless them with a gift and year end spoil. Give me a shout to bless these deserving ladies!

Greetings and much love

Loressa Kritzinger, Coordinator
