A TIP:

It is a good idea to check the Squares Lists every month to see when your parcels arrive.  The South African team doesn't always have time to send a reply ...although they do try !

A grateful child thanks You !

Ronda said we may start sending parcels again.  The fact that it will take your parcels 4 - 6 weeks to get to South Africa means that, hopefully, the PO situation will be better.  It must be nice to have room to move around again :-)

Please add your total to Knit-a-Square Delivers   to help the virtual Van reach the Office.

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
