Nothing to beat Hand-Knitted Jerseys

Bernie and Vuyo delivered hand-knitted jerseys and new school shoes to these young ladies

Today Vuyokazi and I had the pleasure of delivering these hand-knitted jerseys to, let’s call them ‘THE TWINS,’at a local township school.  The jerseys were knitted by Mrs Phyllis Elliott (a big Ikhala Trust supporter).  Aside from the jerseys, Melanie Preddy, our colleague, gave us money to buy school shoes.  We did not want to deliver these before the elections, just in case there was suspicion that we were ‘seeking votes’.  The twins are amongst hundreds of children living in very difficult conditions.  We visited their ‘room’which they share with their parents and 3 siblings. Their gratitude was tangible – one of them was wearing a short sleeve shirt and the other one’s jersey was so tattered and torn it made our heart’s sore.

So, spreading the warmth today!!!
