Nothing beats the excitement of a child at Christmas...  a time when everyone is busy writing their Christmas lists.

At A Reaching Hand we were so happy to bring joy again this year to the hearts and homes of the children in Khayelitsha, Uitsig and Scottsdene, who normally would not be that fortunate to get their wishes fulfilled. We THANK the many who helped us make this possible with their cash donations towards the Xmas Fund. We have some names, but many were unknown! We would like to mention the ones we know of; Björn Sävdal, Björn Säfvestad, Sharon Jedwood CohenLouis Jansen Van VuurenChristiaan DiedericksAlex Hamilton & Zelda HamiltonColleen Webb-burgessLisl SnydersMoira Ellie JimbaMorkel Malherbe and Maureen MacDonald. Thank You to everyone who shared our post...and Thank You to those whose names I missed out! You know who you are! Thank you to all our sponsors for helping us to make a difference in their lives.
See their precious faces on the picture! They bring such joy to our hearts.

Our Art Therapy-end-of-year party in Delft was such FUN as always! Served with a yummy healthy special meal, each child went home with lots of gifts and goodies!!! They thank you and wish you all a Merry Merry Christmas!!!!

A special thank you also to 13 year old Ethan and the 3 Helping Hands for the special gift of reading kits delivered to the kids in Khayelitsha.  'KidsHelpingKids' Ethan, you really do inspire us! Continue your good work to help the less fortunate kids with nutrition and education. In the new year we will deliver more reading kits to other less fortunate communities.

We wish you the gift of Health & Happiness! May you be Safe, May you be Peaceful.

Merry Christmas & Much Love from the A REACHING HAND Team Karin Hoole, Charlene Blacker, Bev Johansen and Louise Persson.

A drop of rain is insignificant, but together we can make a river.
