KAS VISITS THE HOUSE

A ROAD TRIP - DAY ONE !

Towards the end of May, Gina arranged three distributions through the Morester Children’s Home, a Christian faith based organisation situated in the towns of Ladysmith and Newcastle in KwaZulu Natal. 

The vision of Morester is to “give children a home for today and a future for tomorrow”.  Across their various homes, they care for 200 children who have been removed from their families, or from the circumstances in which they were living, because it was not safe or healthy for them to live there anymore.  

We also used this opportunity to meet up with a long-time KAS friend – Joy Coetzee – more about her in our second report of this “series”!  

Thanks to our amazing volunteers who stayed at the office bundling blankets and packing various items until 22h00 the evening before, Wendy and I were able to go into the office on the Friday and load the van to the brim with your wonderful contributions, destined for KwaZulu Natal.  We left mid-morning and headed off on our trip. 

Our first stop was the town of Newcastle which is located inland in the northwest corner of KwaZulu Natal, a few kilometres south of the Free State, Mpumalanga and Gauteng provincial borders, in the foothills of the Drakensberg.  The municipality covers an area of 1855 km².  Newcastle is about a four hour drive from our Johannesburg KAS offices.  We visited Home Meah shortly after we arrived, hot and dusty though we were.  Our mouths were dry too, as we nattered non-stop the whole day down!

Home Meah was incorporated into Morester Children’s Home on 1 September 2011.   It was the brainchild and faith project of Jacky Horn and derived its name from Meah, an abandoned child who was cared for by Jacky. The house was initially administrated by the local church council until it became part of Morester Children’s Homes.
