Another stop on the WMO Africa Chapter Orphanage project was Al Noor in Capetown.
The 54 children facility had its young residents jostling for space and the dilapidated condition of the home needed an urgent upgrade. 4 double bunk beds, 4 cupboards, a washing machine, beddings and blankets were duly delivered to the delight of its occupants.
The children’s eyes lit up when they noticed the vibrant new linens add colour to the drab surroundings.
A reticent and shy little girl, suffering from downs syndrome, was so touched by the warm, plush blanket she received that she managed to utter a few words of gratitude. It was quite surprising as she had a long history of never speaking in public before. A word of thanks to Muhammad and Ahmed from Fati Online who assisted us with the logistics, transport, sourcing and for making the process seamless.
To Farzana, daughter of our WMO President, we are grateful to you for joining us in facilitating the distribution. And last but not the least, to our Regional Secretary General, Dr. Taheera Hassim who personally flew down to Cape town from Johannesburg to oversee the last leg of the project. Please add a big hug from our end to the countless ones you have so warmly received from hundreds of thankful children whose lives you have touched through this admirable program. You make us proud, girl!
