Ronda and Wendy continue to bring us wonderful photographs of the children receiving their blankets, hats and garments. Along with many story snippets of their experiences at the variations places. These photographs not only confirm to the world that by taking direct action our members are making a difference
One Square at a Time!
Sharing has a way of multiplying happiness and dividing sorrow.
It's great to see there smiling faces with and blanklet to keep then warm and cozy .
Pam, every time you post a series of photos, I think to myself "The children in this creche are the cutest"..... and then you post some from another creche.... and find myself thinking the same thing all over again. We can never see too many of these photos. Thanks to Ronda and Wendy for sending them, and to you for giving us your time to post them.
My problem is that I would love to adopt one too!! The photos just hit me - they are truly the most beautiful and happy children. Put my children to shame when I think that they have too much of everything but never appear as content as these beautiful children in the photos.
I've just recognised a toy I sent. A meerkat being held by a little girl. I sent it as part of the Africa challenge. She's in the top picture at the end and in the middle in the peach t-shirt. I knitted it a scarf. She doesnt look very happy.
When the distributions take place it can be a very emotional day for the children - almost overwhelming, so I wouldn't worry Joan, I expect she loves it to bits now!
Yes, she looks a bit shy, so it probably was a big day. She is holding it very tightly.
What a super set of photos! Thank you so much for posting them for us. I love looking...I look at the wonderful variety of hats, and the stuffed toys, some sure look like ones I sent and it is so heartening to see so many of them, and so darling to see the children carrying them baby style on their backs. Look at all those warm warm squares made up into blankets! Love it!
Well done Jeanne for spotting items you sent ! I love the blanket rolls, it certainly looks too hot to appreciate them yet, but come winter....! The kids are full of smiles anyway.
ITHUMELENG - This is the place run by Mavis which was going to be closed down, but for the arrival of KAS 48 hours before the dead line with much needed sleeping mats and blankets etc., Ronda and the USA Volunteers visited her again earlier this year, and, Ronda describes her as a wonderful woman. Here are some pics from 2011, some you may have seen, but others are new :
