Numbi Primary School’s Land Service Club recently joined forces with Crystal Rock Ministries to support the SizaBantwana Outreach children’s programme.
Land Service members of grade 4 and 5 joined 300 children from SizaBantwana at the Marite Community Hall, where they prayed together. Learners also helped other volunteers from the community prepare food and serve lunch to the children.
The Land Service will also collect stationery, clothes and canned food to support the more than 800 children being helped by SizaBantwana Outreach.
All donations from the community are welcome and can be taken to Numbi Primary School.
SizaBantwana operates among vulnerable and orphaned children in the Bushbuckridge and Hazyview districts. These children live in the homes of relatives or caring neighbours who are supported by the SizaBantwana volunteers.
After school, the children are served a meal at a SizaBantwana care centre, prepared by caring and trained volunteers. The children play outside under the trees and sit mostly on the ground when eating – probably the only meal that many of them will receive for the whole day.
Some of the food is donated by local farmers and the balance is purchased with donations by a caring public.
Children attending this project do not only need food, but also love and tender care. Some of these children are terminally ill and may not live to see another Christmas.
Volunteers are trained on how to best provide much-needed care to the orphans, destitute children, and the terminally sick. In addition, SizaBantwana provides holistic social services to help children cope and religious services to show them the love of God. SizaBantwana currently cares for 661 orphaned children.
