Thank you so much for all your welcome messages.
This week on Tuesday I visited a Kliptown shelter named Khayalethu where I met with the district analysis officer. I met and spoke with the 320 kids who they are catering for at the moment - all from different areas of Soweto. This is our biggest project in Soweto at the moment and we are planning to do a big distribution of blankets there on the 16th of June which is Soweto Day. From next week I will be taking them 900 squares a week for 80 ladies there to sew into blankets for this distribution! I will keep you posted on their progress!!
We also visited Kliptown yesterday with a friend of Erin's who is a professional photographer. She was able to get some wonderful pictures of 'day-to-day' life in the area. It is a place of extreme poverty and a stark reminder of why we do what we do... We will share her pictures when they are available but in the meantime some of our own pictures are attached below.
Next week, once I have been able to get the accurate information, I will also give you an update on the flooding that happened in Kliptown last year.
