On 27 April, the St Albans, Cathedral Youth together with Tumelong Mission and St Albans social development undertook an outreach program at KIDS VICTORY MISSION.
We started the day with praise and worship,and a scripture reading from Psalm 23 which was lead by the youth’s worship officer, Ms Kea Mafatle, this was a wonderful and uplifting moment for both the residents and us, we felt the Holy spirit surrounding us.
We then Proceeded to identify the problems the shelter faced on a daily basis, the home is not in a pleasing state at the moment and it needs serious attention. Restoration is needed from the kitchen to the bathrooms.
The home is in need of warm blankets, clothing, curtains, pillows, mattress, and linen, not forgetting a first aid kit. We then divided our selves in groups, and cleaned the walls and the back yard. When we left there was a huge difference.
This was an eye opening event as most of us felt humbled by the glowing smiles of the children and the elders there.
We would like thank Pearl Jansen who donated her funiture TV, Wall unit, microwave, christmas trees, washing machine, mattress, blinds for windows, computer screens and clothes to Tumelong Mission. These goods were donated to the Center by Tumelong Mission the day before the visitation. Thank you Mama Shiela Matshali for preparing meals that we shared with the residents of the shelter
