Great that these children will be a bit warmer at night now - it must be very hard knowing how great the need is and having to watch out for the violence as well as the Covid-19. We know you ae all doing everything you can. Please stay safe.
There is turmoil in South Africa in mid July. Ronda has found a gentleman named Paul that is willing to deliver blankets to those in needs. He loads up his truck with KAS goodies and Ronda prepares soup and sandwiches for distribution. This is not the normal way that KAS distributes blankets. Current nighttime temperatures are near -4C or 25F. There are children that desperately need KAS blankets. Here are some photos and notes from these distributions.
Ronda collected 21 blankets, beanies and scarves from the KASbarn on Tuesday, July 20, and then made soup and sandwiches, with a devotional page inserted in each parcel, for KAS Outreach. Our amazing Paul, his girlfriend Raquel and friend Rocky did a great job last night in Alexandra Township. As you can see from Paul’s videos we included bread rolls, biscuits and sugar. We loved Solomon and the dear old man with his sarmies. We appreciate everything you are doing Paul, you’re a STAR.
These blankets were made by Ana.
thank god for people like Paul and Rhonda!
It is good that the blankets are being distributed. Nice to see that the dog came along to help - and I hope Paul stays safe while doing this.
Good to see that some distributions are still taking place despite the Covid restrictions. So many people in need.
Thanks ,Wandi, for the lovely photos of your distribution. It’s always great to see the children wrapped up nice and warm in their blankets. I see a square from Chris in the last picture
VERY happy looking children in these pictures. Thank you for taking time to show us ♥️
Athele and Ronda loaded up the KAS Van on August 24 to distribute 71 KAS packages to children in Soweto. Our trusty KAS drive, Themba got them there safely on their bean bag thrones, well they rode in the back and had to have someplace sit in the back of the van.
Right off the bat, they were greeted with song and dance.
Then the distribution of glorious blankets began.
