Sending Love to the Home of Joy

Over the past few weeks, our Prep parents, children and staff have joined forces to gather much-needed items for the local Home of Joy, an orphanage in Grahamstown/Makhanda. We were astounded by the enthusiasm of the children, the input of parents and staff and the wonderful vibe around the whole project.
The Home of Joy cares for the orphaned and vulnerable children in our community and is home to 30 children – the youngest being two months old.
An incredible mom to these little ones is Margaret Ncanca, who has had her doors open to the community for over 30 years. Her eldest orphaned child is now a qualified nurse! Ma Margaret is now 74 years old and going as strong as ever.
Margaret (Gogo) will be helping at the LIV Lukhanyiso Village once it is built and will train up other caregivers to provide this crucial service to our community.
