Fikelela project 2013
David & Susan Markham's photos from a visit made in 2013. David writes now "During that visit we presented the parish’s gift of £200 – converted into South African Rands - to the Fikelela Project to help victims of Aids. It is a project run throughout the Anglican Diocese of Cape Town. Someone took a picture of us making the presentation to a group at St Thomas’ Church, Rondebosch and we will be making another presentation at St Thomas’ Church later this month (Feb 2014). The lady in charge of the St Thomas’ part of the diocesan project, Jenny Masterton also took us to the Khayelitsha township near Cape Town, where she helped to set up an early years educational and nutritional project. It was a very moving experience to see these under privileged children taking the first steps on the educational ladder and not only being given advice on health and nutrition but being provided with healthy meals during the school day.
The Khayelitsha project is nothing to do with our parish, but it just shows the work that is going on to help the under privileged in South Africa. I hope people will be interested."
