This distribution was organised by Mabel ... she and Joel loaded up the KasVan on Tuesday on a very cold day in June, and delivered blankets and other warm items to more than 220 children in two day-care centres in the Orange Farm area. Along with the Thahameso Distribution, Joel and Wandi visited Injabulo ECD (Early Childhood Development) Centre.
The name "Orange Farm" was one of the first really massive informal settlement areas to form alongside the N1 Freeway between Johannesburg and southerly parts of SA such as the Free State and provinces of the Cape. It was a hotbed of political unrest and caused terror to strike the heart of motorists in those "bad old days"! Nobody in their right mind would dare to travel in the hours of darkness along that freeway for fear of finding bricks and huge pieces of concrete strewn across the road to either slow drivers down, or cause them to stop, or even have an accident ... at which point people would leap out of the bushes and attack. Many were the incidents of robberies at gunpoint ... and much worse.
BECAUSE OF KAS MEMBERS..............
But now, while it is still poverty-ridden, the area is dotted with day care centres and is a hive of activity - and one of our most prolific areas of distribution.
