Early in June we headed off to Othandweni Day Care Centre, in Finetown. We found that when we start distributing in a new area, the word spreads and principals of all the other local Day Cares come forward asking for blankets, which might explain why, this year, we ended up doing a number of distributions in Finetown (you may have noticed?!) We arrived at Othandweni and were taken aback by the large number of children being cared for in this tiny facility.
With the help of the teachers, we were able dress some of the children in your lovely warm tops – you will notice we pulled them over what the children were wearing so they did not have to take off layers and get cold in the process.
