Volunteer at House Madalithso / January – April 2015

I had such an amazing and precious time during my three month stay at the House of Safety in Kleinmond.

My time was filled with taking care of the babies needs, like feeding, bathing, calming them, taking them for a walk, changing diapers or playing with them. One of the things I liked most about work was that it was so diversified. I worked for one week at a township crèche where they are taking care of 50 to 54 children on 9 square meters! This was such a special experience which I will never forget. At another week I was helping at a farm with 24 horses and every Wednesday I was the assistant at the soccer program which Zehandi started only when I arrived. Besides all this different opportunities to help, we also renovated the babyhouse, where we could be creative and my experience in painting and carrying cots expanded . Additionally some admin tasks had to be done which was a nice variety.

Besides of all the work we had still enough free time which I loved to spend at the beach that is only 10 minutes walking distances away. You can hike in the mountains; rest at the beach or just have a “lekker” milkshake at the harbor. I felt so welcome since the beginning and every volunteer is treated like a part of a big family.

Praise the Lord for this precious time! Amazing memories, new friends, a lot of patience, Palmiet Beach is a piece of paradise and I´m ready to become a mother ;)
