Our First Project

Dear Bibi Hearts Friend,

It is a great honor to share the first project News Letter with you. Our aim is to share with you all our news on a regular basis so that you can stay in touch with all that is happening in the project.

I would like to give you an update on the highlights of the last 4 months (January to April 2015).

JANUARY:

We celebrated my birthday by having a kid’s party all in aid for the children in the project. This was such a great success we were able to give food and bedding to Sedibeng Safe House for Children, Handbags to Thutuzela Crisis Center, 6 months’ worth of specialized nappies for Kegan and items for the Bibi Packs for our own project. We were grateful for everyone’s support. The day was filled with lots of laughs and fun for old and young. We spoiled the kids from the Sedibeng Safe House for Children as well as some of the Cancer patients from Cup Cakes for Cancer project with a day out at a fun park.

 

I have also added a picture of my two team members. Ninette Kruger from the Drab2Fab Team and Joalta Wilkinson from Lifeline. Together we make a Team and we take hands together to make a difference!

January - My birthday party

how how much fun we had at my Birthday party.

We wanted to give the children the chance just to be kids for a few hours and they truly enjoyed themselves. I would definitely encourage people to celebrate their birthdays in this manner as there is so much more joy in giving than receiving!

 

February - BAKING TEAM

The Drab2Fab Team started this year off with a great baking team.

Ninette Kruger is managing this project. The baking Team is baking freshly baked biscuits on a weekly basis and they are sold out every week. They are creative and the ladies are loving their time in the kitchen. This project is providing a monthly income to the ladies that is part of the Drab2Fab Team which are a job creation program.

February - ROTARY RIVERSIDE: RURAL SCHOOL PROJECT

We have started with making educational Bean Bags for the Rotary Riverside Rural School project. At Bibi Hearts we support education especially in the underprivileged areas. We have started during February with the first stage of these educational Bean Bags.

 

THE EVENT

We were invited to the opening of the Rural Scho0l Library Project in Secunda.

Bibi Hearts were able to donate a few books towards this Library with the help of our local community.

At Bibi Hearts we believe at helping children at all levels – from basic needs to educational needs. We do not take basic things like being able to read for granted and therefore we love supporting projects like Caring Communities.

Marqaruite Veldman and her husband Dries took the initiative to make a difference in their local community by uplifting a local rural school by upgrading and rebuilding a Library for the Van Stadens Dam School.

 

Word of Life Christian School

Word of Life Christian School in Arcon Park have adopted Bibi Hearts as a project for their Schools monthly outreach program, and every month they support our project. During February they helped us collecting some books for the Caring Community Rural Book project which we decided to support.

 

Community Support for the Book Project

We also received some extra books from the local community for the Caring Community Project including a big book donation from our local Rotary club – Rotary Riverside Vanderbijlpark.

 

RUAN’S BIRTHDAY

We celebrated a very special boy’s Birthday… Ruan – he is one of Bibi Hearts Cancer Angels and we had the honor in spoiling Ruan with some winter clothing and toys.

Ruan is still fighting his Cancer battle but he is truly a strong boy with a big heart. He always have a smile and hugs to share.

Please keep this brave little boy in your prayers as he and his family really needs it!
