Dec.18th was the first Xmas Hamper for the kids at the squatter camp. What fun! The kids were assembled in front of the house of one of the ladies who helped organize the day. They were seriously excited, and even more so once I opened the trailer lid, and the cars boot, and they could see all the stuff!
So, one at a time I lifted a pack, called the name out, and the child came and got his pack, cold drink, and blanket. The very little one's were assisted by their mommies, or bigger brother or sister.
The moms were just as excited as the kids! One child wasn't there - had to attend a funeral. Another 2 had gone to town with thier parents. no problem, the "organizers assistant" would keep theirs for them.
I also delivered 3 big bags of old clothes, which the "organizers assistant" will distribute as she sees fit.
Anyway, a lot of work, and a very successful conclusion. I feel good, I'm sure the kids are having a ball discovering whats in their packs, and the moms don't have to buy blankets for that child for a while.
Thnaks to everyone who assisted, to LuckyL who went with to do the blankets and take photos, and to the Princess who put up with all the stuff taking up a large part of the second lounge.
In case I don't post anything again before then, a Merry Xmas to you all, and a Prosperous New Year. God Bless.
