Mirriam House - Get Involved
In a house with 20 children there are always plenty of hands needed to help run the household. Apart from the physical needs like food and clothing, the children also needs individual attention. Between Mirriam and Gina they do not always have the capacity to fulfill all these needs.
That is why volunteers and visitors are always welcome to visit the house, to play with the children and spend time with the family.
We appreciate and welcome anyone who wants to get involved. The main areas of support includes:
- spending time with the children playinplaying
- reading to them
- taking them on special outings during school holidays
- financial assistance to support the house.
Dare to give of your time
There are 16 school going children in the house. We are in need of more hands to assist with homework, teaching the children basic maths / reading and helping with homework. And then off course help with the smaller ones in basic reading, counting and playing!
Sponsor a day out
In the past year we have been fortunate to have a farm in Wellington available to us where we take the children during school holidays to ride horses, quadbikes, play etc.
This year we would like to treat the children to more educational outings like taking them to Table Mountain, Two Oceans Aquarium, a restaurant, visit a wine farm in the region etc.
Please contact Johan if you would like to sponsor a day outing.
