Ever wonder what happens with all that mail that arrives in South Africa?  It goes to the KAS Barn where many volunteers SORT everything out to eventually be distributed to local children.

   Please check in here on a regular basis to see photos from all the activity in the KAS Barn during 2019.

I will double check, but I believe that was the Board's intention last year.  

When the Post Office started charging the handling fees in July, I think the plans for the increase had to be put on hold.

on knit a square .com, gogos support it says 2 usd

I think Rhonda hoped for a raise to 1.50 but the funds really aren't there. I can see with the postal fees the appeal of the large distribution if it cuts fuel costs for a few months. 

Our intention was to give the a raise to $2.  In 2018 they were paid R10 per blanket.  Starting in January of this year they are paid R15.  Not much of an increase but what we can manage at the moment.  

With the fluctuation of the exchange rate that comes out to about 1.25 USD at the moment.

Yikes, on February 12 the barn had no power for part of the day.  Liz and Ann were happy sitting next to the entrance for light.

And Ronda was able to fill her arms with lots of blankets.

Athele enjoyed her cup of Jo.

And the others enjoyed theirs, too!

Themba also enjoyed a flat white...small latte.

Thank you so much for the great pictures!   It takes more than a power outage to stop a team of KASers, eh :))) 

And there's that pattern again ... the knitted panel in front of Themba.  Wonder who made it ... xo

Remember these from Karen Gordon's Mom posted in December....

...well they arrived all safe and sound in South Africa.


Awww....... great to see my parcel with the surprise goodies from my Mum has arrived so quickly!   I'll be sure to tell her ASAP.   Thank you X
