April 2015

We have just been in Justicia for the 11th time, and as usual we had many places to visit. We started at Happy Homes pre-school where the number of children keeps increasing.

Their vegetable garden is better than ever because of the new shelter. dsc_1534

Then we went to Ntshuxekani pre-school.

All the NOSA children were gathered in the “sewing project” building to celebrate Håkon and Lindiwe’s  birthdays. The room was nicely decorated in the African way, and so were Håkon and Lindiwe.

Six months training has come to an end. Yvonne will continue to run the project and 5 ladies and one man are employed.

For the first time NOSA has produced the uniforms donated to some of the children at the two pre-schools in Justicia.

Thanks to everybody who have donated baby and toddler clothing to NOSA, we distributed almost a hundred kilos of clothes at the clinic.

The last day we arranged a soccer game between the NOSA children and the Maranatha church.

And for the first time all NOSA children and relatives were gathered at the Project instead of the church for goodbye party.

It is always sad to leave, but we are already looking forward to our next visit.
