Square Circle Forum

Ronda and Wendy have been producing quite a catalogue of photographs from the recent distributions, rather than post them a few at a time, it was decided to create a discussion page where they could be displayed more speedily so that members might be able to spot their squares, garments or hats earlier!  Spotting one of our own creations in Africa really does spur as on to even greater creativity!

Here is one of the gorgeous children in a
'before' and 'after' photo!
 
      Often one reads comments from members wishing they could do more, but the only thing we have to do, is exactly the amount of goodness that each of us has available from looking after our families etc.,  EVERY SQUARE  is so very valuable, and it does make a difference. KAS members have contributed an astonishing number of squares during the last 4 and half years - added together, we have brought comfort and warmth to thousands upon thousands of deprived, vulnerable, and, sadly often unwell children.  Below is a quote from one of the loveliest Africans to grace that continent - Bishop Desmond Tutu which really summarises everything the KAS Band of Sisters & Brothers do, day in day out, freely and without thought of self!  We knit & crochet to support these children totally unconditionally.

Here are the photographs taken by Ronda and Wendy of the children of Zenzele, during the GOMA Outreach special Day on Saturday 28th June 2013 - many of the children had been to a Face Painting session provided by the Goma team!  Ronda commented that it was a FREEZING cold day. 

Great pictures.  It's so nice to see the children with the homemade blankets around them!  Makes you smile!

They are all bundled up and look happy to be warm in a blanket!  Nice Job!

Such beautiful children and such beautiful blankets.  Thanks so much for the photos!

Marvelous photos, Pam.  Thanks for setting this up - we can never see too many!

THE ZENZELE STITCHING LADIES -  The ladies of the community all crammed into a class room at the church and sang gospel music at the top of their voices while sewing together KAS blankets and enjoying a cup of tea and biscuits.  Wendy, Abegail, Zodwa and I decided not to try our talents at rapping with the children and joined the ladies sewing blankets instead.

Pastor (Thomas) from the Randfontein church group has been in touch saying that the 63 extra blanket-packs we took on Saturday 15th had already been stitched up and distributed by the following Thursday !

They want more ... which is fine, but it's MILES away, so we have to make a plan about driving them out there at some stage. Wonderful enthusiasm  !!!

Here are some of the lovely photographs of the ladies getting stuck into some serious blanket making!

Wendy really loved this young lady with the beautiful smile!

Wendy having a go!

Some of the completed blankets.

Stitched by Ronda and Wendy!

A lovely community spirit and beautiful blankets coming up !

Beautiful blankets.  Love how the community gets behind KAS and helps all they can!

It's incredible to see stunning blankets being created by so many beautiful women from contributions from so many people around the world.  If all people could just come together like a blanket!

Love these pictures.  So many hands make short work and blankets ready to warm the kids.   :D

Nice pics Ronda!  Let the good work continue.  Bless you all!

Just Beautiful. Heartwarming to see the ladies work to put these squares together and the children wrapped in warmth. Love it.
