Visitors And Donation From St John’s School Houghton

On Tuesday, 5th November, Koketso Manaka and Tshegofatso Mphake, two matric boys from prestigious St John’s school in Houghton, arrived with their mentor, Mrs Jael Phaswana, with a combi full of good quality unwanted clothing for our Mercy work. It was all the boys’ idea and they worked hard to collect this donation from their peers. It was a touching experience to find two such public-spirited young men (see photo) and to see also the enthusiasm of their mentor, Jael.

She later revisited us with beautiful gifts for our two youngest residents who both had birthdays in November – the photo shows how delighted they were.





Jael came back again on Saturday 15 February 2020 with more clothing and cleaning materials.

Thank you so much to Jael and her students. May you all be blessed for helping those less fortunate than yourselves. No doubt we all experience that “there is far more joy in giving than in receiving!”
