Loves and life on the Garden Route in South Africa

Through the eyes of volunteer coordinator and crazy cat lady, Sharon

It’s cold out there June 25, 2013

A friend of mine who works for Tours for South Africa received a large donation of new blankets from an unknown donor- well known to us.

Picked up 3 large boxes yesterday and today took one if the boxes to our local clinic and handed them out to mothers with you babies. Tomorrow the rest will be distributed to the children at a local youth center and other children from the surrounding community. It’s very chilly in South Africa at the moment!!!
