Carmen has visitied one of the projects supported by Hilltop The Daily Bread Childrens Home for abused Children. She met with some of the management team there and she was warmly recieved. Daily Bread is very interested in any assistance that can be offered by Sarah and they offered her accomodiation on the property and even the possiable use of one of their vehicles for the weekend use upon approval. Sarah has found the Daily Bread to be an wonderful place where she can assist in many areas there and has her own set of skills and desires to apply to the programmes there at the home.

W look forward to having Sarahs return in January 2017 for a year of voluntary service which would add great value to the Daily Breads facility and help where needed with the management team. 

She also visited a director of a Childrens Home outside of King Williams Town in  the village location of  Quzini where children are in need and Amanda Maritz a former employess of Child Welfare and Child Protection Services is starting her own home for orphans and also educating and assisting disabled children in the community. This could be another venue to assist and make a difference as well. With Sarah's skills and special care many levels of healing and nurturing can take place in the lives of many in need. Thank you Sarah for caring and  for being willing to serve our communities here in the Eastern Cape with your desire to give and nurture others!
