Freedom Day Camp for New Life Kids

May 23, 2010 by Victoria Rowe No Comment

46 kids from Qolweni went on an overnight camp, and enjoyed a day trip to Monkey Land.  Thanks to Starling Backpacker’s for providing beds, lovely chicken dinner, and hot showers.  We appreciate Marcelo’s FREE transport, and The Plettenberg for providing breakfast, and towels!  A great time was had by all, as the kids embraced simple pleasures we all take for granted.  Most of them have never had an opportunity to sleep in a bed or take a shower.  Living in shacks, many of these kids sleep on mats, or foam pads on the floor, and wash with a cloth and bucket of water.
