South Africa 2019: On the ground and preparing for bedkit distributions

The SCAW team had a truly wonderful day today enjoying their new friends from South Africa. The day began with a pre-distribution meeting at the home of Shirley Downie, the South African Team Coordinator. Plans for the upcoming distribution were discussed and final details sorted to give out 1500 bedkits to needy children in South Africa.

The teams then bonded and ate salads and sausage and ribs cooked over a wood “braii” (barbecue).

An afternoon drive though one of the “townships” and a tour of a local mosque (the largest in the Southern Hemisphere) was very interesting.

Both teams are looking forward to our first two school visits in the townships tomorrow, and are excited to meet the children.
