July through September are the coldest months in South Africa as winter temperatures are the lowest.
This discussion will capture the many distributions that take place in the Third Quarter. There is a Mass Distribution in honour of Mandela Day and one for celebrating Christmas in July.
This creche is a State sponsors facility, that being said they are still waiting for items to be sent to them to keep the children safe.
Here are some interior and exterior photos from around the creche.
Area where breakfast is prepared.
Check in area.
This creche is lucky to have running water and toilets.

Estelle was a trooper. She was in the back of the KAS Van on the way to the distribution...
She has yet to settle herself in her deluxe beanbag chair.
On the return trip she moved up to Business Class...
Remember we had four team member on this distribution. Themba, driver, Wandi, Ronda and Estelle.
Many thanks to all of you for the great show of love and compassion, and bringing the joy right into our home across land and sea.
Thank you for these wonderful reports. The next best thing to being there ourselves.
Our team of volunteers spoil us with distribution reports.
My goodness how clean and tidy ✔️
Estelle and Mandy made another distribution on July 25.
Here is their report from Fandise Informal Settlement in Soweto
oh my ! I see blankets that recently have been in the blanket room - how quickly you have been getting them out. Delighted to say TWO completed blankets on their way to you from Scotland which I hope will arrive during the winter months.
Yes, our squares and blankets do not sit in The Barn for very long.
Can't wait to see you blankets in The Barn, soon.
Here are more photos from the distribution on July 25. They will be in small groups
Wow! Between pages one through three I believe I counted 13 blankets that Kathy and I knitted. It’s so wonderful to see the children decked out! Thank you to all the hardworking volunteers.
