Ever wonder what happens with all that mail that arrives in South Africa?  It goes to the KAS Barn where many volunteers SORT everything out to eventually be distributed to local children.

   Please check in here on a regular basis to see photos from all the activity in the KAS Barn during 2019.

The Barn was a beehive of activity on November 5.  A large parcel of blankets from Croatia came in, their 50th package and the team rolled blankets in preparation of future distributions.

Chris Chiplen's wonderful traffic blanket.

So fun to see a KAS cuddlebug ready for delivery.

The shelves are filling up with rolled-up blankets.

I love seeing the toys on the outside of the rolled blankets. Lots of interesting photos, a new blanket cake, shelves filling up and gorgeous toys. I’m thrilled to see my blanket for Bev’s this month’s road safety theme, I’d made it early and sent it off, seeing it the barn has made my day!

Update from November 12:

Wandi and Mabel sorting out blankets from Mabel'[s distribution of 200 blankets coming soon in the Sasolburg area.

 Childrens' clothing, pencils and some baby blankets going to Sasolburg with Mabel.

Athele and Estelle are our large beanie models today.

Beautiful squares delivered by Monica.

Erin, Ronda's daughter and KAS Board Member was able to make the monthly Board meeting, she came all the way from Cape Town.  All Board Member were present.

One of the tops/jumper/sweater KAS has recently received.  There have been enough lately to be included in a distribution or two.

We celebrated Vivienne's birthday.

These square came from a school girl from St. Teresa's Convent.

It has become quite the thing form several schools to bring us their squares, (sometimes in very interesting shapes and sizes), for us to provide letters of thanks in support of their community service hours achievement for their schools.  

Schools that we most frequently receive squares from are: St. Teresa's - Rosebank Cont, Reddam College Bedfrodview, Holy Rosary Convent Edenvale, St. Benedict's College in Bedfordview, St. Andrews Girls High in Bedfordview, Heronbridge School in North Riding and Beaulieu College in Kyalami.

Photos from November 19.  The shelves are empty due to Mabel's preparation for the Lindley distribution in Free State.
