|SOLAR GEYSERS FOR SHALOM|
We have installed 2 new solar geysers at our Shalom Children's Home, which will ensure that there is plenty of hot water despite powercuts! We are hoping to install 2 more, so that each family unit at Shalom will have their own.
|SHALOM LEARNING CENTRE MOVES LOCATION|
With the increase in the number of children in Shalom Children’s Home, it was decided to move the Learning Centre to Greystone Park Church. Not only is this beneficial for the children’s concentration but it also means that they get to have a change of scenery as they travel across town for school. There are now 13 children in the Learning Centre and they are loving their new desks and classroom. Mrs Ferreira is our newly appointed Headmistress and together with Abby and Sheila this team are ensuring the children receive an excellent education.
|ORPHAN SUNDAY - 4TH NOVEMBER|
On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are people called to defend the fatherless ... to care for the child that has no family ... to visit orphans in their distress. From many sources, one voice. On 4th November 2012, thousands of events echo around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God's great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well. The Michael Project is part of this.
|A TRIP TO THE FARM|
As one of the topics this term was 'Animals and Nature' the teachers decided to take the children from the pre-school for an outing to a local farm where they could see horses, ducks, rabbits and various other animals.
|ORPHAN CARE & ADVOCACY|
Our newest area of ministry is with orphaned and abandoned babies within the hospital system. These babies are often found by the police or social welfare and brought to the hospital, who are already operating at full capacity and are therefore not in a position to look after these abandoned babies. Simple needs that we can meet are the supply of nappies, formula and clothing.
