We worked together with The Santa Shoebox Project to get ponchos to children in need throughout South Africa.
Below are some photographs of the kids, plus a note from their National Coordinator, Irene’ Pieters
This was the most heartwarming experience I have had for a long time. That something simple like a rain poncho could have a life changing effect on a child’s life. We heard it all again yesterday – when it rains the parents don’t send the kids to school – no money or means to get to a Dr or to buy medication when the kids get sick. They miss many days of school as a result. Even the educational after-school programmes implemented by Pebbles fizzle out as there are just not enough kids to keep it going in the winter months. Lets hope this will all change in winter of 2015!
