Elitha Letho Outreach
The Outreach Committee organized an outreach to Elitha Letho, a creche situated in Groenheuwel. JTC members and scholars from various schools visited the children, ages varying from 18 months to 6 years. We were equipped with drawing utensils, paper, story books and sport balls. The afternoon was spent drawing, playing games and playing soccer with the kids at the day-care centre.
It was an extremely fun and insightful afternoon. These types of outreaches allow us to get a more accurate perception of what the circumstances of so many children truly are like, and in what ways we, as the youth of Paarl, can have a lasting effect on those who are in need. Some of these kids have to stay at the creche for most of the day, while their parents are at work. Norma and the other adults working behind the scene at the creche, taking care of them for the whole day are truly an inspiration to us all.
We again realised exactly how very privileged we are.
