Lead for One (USA Group) / Newkidz on the Block
Thursday 24th March 2016
Bright and early on Thursday morning the 12-strong team of USA volunteers under the pastoral leadership of the Numa Life Church arrived in Mfuleni to do a morning community project.
Newkidz on the Block identified Ikusasalethu Educare Centre (which cares for 71 children) as being the most suitable project for this group as they had already gone through the application process with our organization and we had supported them with grocery vouchers and donations in kind recently too.
The task for the morning was to upgrade the Baby Room of this Educare Centre; paint the outside front and side perimeter walls of the Educare with a fresh coat of paint; bless them with toys, books, blankets, snack bars, crayons, mats, curtains, baby bottle sterilizing kit; and provide them with a brand new Educare Centre sign J
The Baby Room needed a lot of tender loving care and in particular, the walls needed careful preparation before any paint could be applied. Well, what a team! They kept working from start to finish and the end result was beautiful!
Princess (the Principal) was extremely grateful and overjoyed.
Newkidz on the Block will be back to upgrade the other classrooms for them too.
