Dear Catherine the money arrived today. The total R50,787. This is outstanding. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. I will go to the shacks on Wed. I have some plans for the young mothers. God bless will be in touch B xxx
This is the room where 13 people, including the little baby above, live.
As you know, the TLC held a Slide Show recently, led by Brendan Byrne and all proceeds went to Sr. Bernadette Duffy.Together with some single donations,a total of £1,000 was raised on the night. Added to money already in the Education for Life Fund, we were able to send £3,000.
This was the first time Sr. Bernadette asked directly for help as the local 'shacks' were destroyed in a fire and the inhabitants lost everything. On visiting on of these 'shacks' after the fire, Sr. B found 13 people living in one room.
