As NEWKIDZ, we stand amazed at the number of volunteers who came and helped improve the Leliebloem Children’s Home over the weekend of the 27th – 29th July 2012.
1039 men, women and children rallied together and filled 1512 3-hour shifts under the supervision of NEWKIDZ Team Leaders, helped with painting, packing & sorting, cleaning, general repair work and gardening. It was an awesome sight to witness.
There was a total of 48 companies who helped us, many of whom gave their labour and material either for free or at a huge discount, for which we are so grateful. A number of companies worked until late into the night to ensure that the work was completed on time.
This project was blessed with great weather right in the middle of Cape Town winter, the wettest we have had in years!
The value of this project is a staggering R1 200 000.00.
