Athele is visiting in Zimbabwe:
"Found this little family on the road outside of Harare, Zimbabwe to give two blankets and a fluffy toy ... Beyond thrilled to get these welcome manifestations of love and hope from around the world.
Thank you Knit-A-Square for making it possible for me to play a role in spreading loving care to those who have so little. I wish you could have been there to experience their joyous surprise at having this manna from heaven suddenly fall into their arms!! The happiest part of a truly magical birthday! [Athele's birthday, September 4]
This dear girl was wearing what looked like a hand me down bridesmaids dress which had seen many better days, covered by a threadbare cardigan. She’d just suffered a head trauma and seemed to be waking back from the clinic, barefoot, with her mom and baby sister. She was absolutely overjoyed with her multicolored blanket."
How wonderful! Tanja managed to make the Christmas party at the Outreach centre on the outskirts of Harare, with some goodies we’ve just got up there in willing suitcases. ...Thanks So Much Tanj, especially having to hire a taxi to make it in spite of lack of fuel. You are an absolute legend!!
We arrived in the middle of a fabulous party yesterday , DJ on the verandah & children dancing joyously . Two beautiful blankets from Cath Riley , Christmas toys made from socks and handwarmers were well received! Thank you Knit-a-square !!!
Aww that's lovely!! Huge thanks to Tanj for all her efforts in getting the 'goodies' to their destination. :))
