08/03/2013 - Baphumelele Children’s Home

On Friday the GOTG Team and ETV Celebs went to the Baphumelele Children’s Home in Khayelitsha. Mama Rosie Mashale, Founder and Director, takes care of 103 children from birth to 18 years old. The children are placed in her care by the state, majority being orphans, HIV/AIDS infected or abused and abandoned.

The staff members consist of care givers, social workers and volunteers from the United Kingdom who reside on the premises for 6 months, sometimes longer. The volunteers enjoy their time with the children at the home, it makes them realize just how fortunate they are and how with every day spent in the township comes new experiences.

Mama Rosie, staff, volunteers and children were in awe when we arrived with all the donations for the home, she thanked us and said that our donation was so huge that it's bound to last for three months. Her gratitude speaks for itself in the letter below.

The ETV team provided and served lunch to all at the home and spent the afternoon interacting with the kids. It was a memorable day with hearty smiles of joy not only from the kids but from the staff and volunteers from Baphumelele Children’s Home as well.
