The Team

Kathy De Gersigny, Debbie Williams, Sandra Merrick, Queen Dube and Nokuthula Ndlovu, together with Dave Lewis and his "transport service" were involved with the project since its inception.
Dave (who is unfortunately unable to assist anymore), would lend his assistance by driving the children home, laden with food parcels, in his old truck.
Gogos and children alike squeeze in and they all set off to enjoy the scenic drive through the village.
Dave, in turn was warmly welcomed by the villagers who greeted him with friendly waves and smiles as he carefully wound his way through the streets between cattle, goats and children, not to mention dogs of all colours, shapes and sizes.
The immaculate flower and vegetable gardens that some of the folk have cultivated are a pleasure to behold!

Kathy resigned because of other commitments, and sadly passed away at the beginning of 2012.

Currently the project is overseen by Mrs. S Merrick with the assistance of Mrs. J Middlemas and the Community Worker Ms N Dlamini
Meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month (following which the food parcels are distributed to the families caring for orphans).
The co-ordinators, when possible, make visits to the soup kitchen in between times to replenish supplies and offer support.
Admin operations are based at the Lidgetton Cash Store from a rented room used as an office and storage space, where the fridge and freezer are kept.
