This year the A Reaching Hand Elves have been hard at work getting all the gifts ready for the kids at the kindergartens in Khayalitsha and Uitsig, as well as for the kids at Colleens Place of Hope in Mitchell's Plain, and what excitement when the elves and Father Xmas arrived! It was such joy to their worlds and to our hearts. Some of the children were excited, others curious and some were afraid and cried, since this was the first time the children had seen "Father Christmas" - but definitely not the last!
We give thanks to all of you who are making it possible to give hope to the lives of these kids and their families.
..."a drop of rain is insignificant, but together we can make a river"
Let the spirit of Christmas warm your home with love, joy and peace. We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Much love from the ARH Team Karin Hoole , Charlene Blacker & Bev Johansen ...and not forgetting our little elf in Sweden Louise Persson!
