Hello my name is Julia, i’m 18 years old and I was volunteering at iKhaya le Themba for four weeks. Now I’m home for just one day and I already miss the kids! The work at iKhaya is very unique and you always have to smile due to the kindness of all the kids. And this kindness is very special, too. The kids live in Imizamo Yethu, a huge township in Hout Bay, when you work with the kids you don’t perceive that their parents maybe have a drug problem or something like this. But I think that is the secret of iKhaya. All these warm- hearted people who organize this project give a lot of hope and love to all kids who live in very bad circumstances ( and of course to all volunteers :).

I really want to say THANK YOU for this great time and I hope to see you soon !

~ Julia
