Thank you so much Heather Park Super Spar for your very generous donations over the past few weeks.
With all the educational and safety programs we held during the school holidays they were enjoyed by everyone who attended.
The kids at Sabine's Haven safe house and our 3 Cluster foster homes enjoyed baking and eating all the sweet treats!
lots of fun was enjoyed by all .
We appreciate the continued support of the George community leaders.

Thank you Garden Route Disaster Management and Zandvliet Farm near Ashton for blessing our children with delicious naartjies as they so rarely get fresh fruit. It is nice to be able to give and receive, especially as we continue to celebrate 🎉 our 95 birthday!
We appreciate that you share our desire to inspire a little hope and happiness.

Happy birthday to us
95 birthday celebrations
On 15 September 1926 George Child and Family Welfare first appeared in the newspaper as a small organisation started by volunteers who wanted to make a difference.

It's 2021 and we celebrate 95 years of dedicated service to those in crisis in our community.
We cannot thank our patron Sabine Platter, through S**C, for her vision and financial support for the past 22 years.
We couldn't have kept our doors open without her generosity.
The George community have been loyal and committed and we appreciate that YOU share our constant desire to inspire a little hope and happiness.
- Today we have 28 staff at our offices
- We employ 22 Early Childhood Developement staff at our 5 early childhood development centres.
- We manage over 750 foster children and work with over 300 families in crisis.
- We run regular workshops to support and educate parents and children
- Sabine Plattner safe house, which was opened in July 2014, has been a place of safety for many children in crisis.
- We have 3 cluster foster homes which are permanent homes for 16 vulnerable children with a planned 4th home to open in 2022.

We love what we do and appreciate all the encouragement and community support from like minded businesses and members of the public.

Please consider dropping off cupcakes at our office on Monday.

We encourage all our friends to pledge R95 to help us continue serving the most vulnerable
Together we strive to keep hope alive and help those in crisis thrive again.
Wouldn't it be lovely if for the next 95 days till Christmas we had one pledge a day?

We serve our community every day so it breaks our hearts when unnecessary vandalism and theft occurs in the community we serve.
This weekend vandals and thieves broke into one of our creches and created havoc. What they couldn't steal they destroyed.
They took out our deepfreeze, washing machine, microvave and gas cylinders but ended up leaving them as they were too heavy to get over the walls.
After all the strain that Covid lockdowns placed on our creche we are really struggling financially to keep the doors open and to give the children safe place to come during the day......
Only YOU can help us recover and keep hope alive and help the children thrive again
If anyone is able to assist with repairs please call Monija at our office 044 8740424 or if you are able to make a donation towards replacing appliances /repairs please find our details below

Thanks to all the enthusiastic volunteers from Hope Church for giving our playground equipment, at all our Early Childhood Development Centres, a new lease on life!
We know our kids are all going to be so excited to see the change when they get back to school on Monday.
Your willingness to give your time, energy, love and enthusiasm is much appreciated!

On Saturday we celebrated 5 birthdays for the month of September.
2 x 1st birthdays
A very happy 3rd birthday to a very busy toddler
Our two lovely teen girls turned 14 & 15
It's so awesome to get all 25 of our cluster foster kids and Sabines Haven safe house kids together for a party. Our birthday kids were each spoilt with their very own birthday cake kindly baked by Danika. (a very special young chef who spoils each child on their birthday).
Superman couldn't contain his excitement while waiting for a balloon.

Lots of laughter and fun and games were enjoyed by all as we do our out most to give the children special memories to treasure as often they have never celebrated their birthday.
Should you wish to assist in anyway please call Kim at our office 044 8740424 or consider making a pledge

Thank you Holy Cross Primary School and all the school children who contributed all the amazing fresh fruit!
Our beneficiaries are really enjoying it.
This afternoon we took some to Sabines Haven place of safety and our 3 cluster foster homes and immediately the kids tucked in!
It's such treat to get fresh fruit as our children don't get to enjoy it often.
We appreciate that Holy Cross and the school children thought of us. Together we join hands in spreading a little hope and happiness.

such truth in these words

I don’t want these kids.

I just don’t.
I don’t want them here.
I don’t want to love them.
I don’t want to wipe their tears.
I don’t want to hold their broken hearts.

I want these children in families.
I want them not to need ‘here’ to exist.
I wish we could just disappear.

I want something else.
Something different.
For Every. Single. One of the many who are unfortunate enough to find their way into our home.

Because I can dress it up and make it pretty and love the socks off every little human through our doors.

We can cherish and adore and do all the snuggles.

But to end up with us, these children have had the unthinkable done.

To end up with us they’ve been torn from their mamma’s.

To end up with us there ain’t no one else waiting to step up.

So.
To be clear.
I don’t want these kids to have to be here.
I don’t sit praying for another to join our clan.
I want them IN THEIR FAMILIES.
I want them WITH THEIR MAMMAS.
I’m dang grateful that we can be here.
And I will say ‘yes’ over and over and over and over until I physically can’t say ‘yes’ anymore.
But I don’t want these kids to need to be here.

The world is just too broken.

Foster care crisis: More kids are entering, but fewer families are willing to take them in 15/08/2021

Foster care crisis: More kids are entering, but fewer families are willing to take them in

sadly true

Foster care crisis: More kids are entering, but fewer families are willing to take them in Experts and state agencies say families are reluctant to take in foster children for fear of spreading Covid-19.

HOME FIRES
Loadshedding again
oh, who is to blame?

Snow on the mountains
frost freezing the fountains.

Life so difficult for many of us
burdens seem mountainous.

Spare a thought for the lonely
while we relax in good company.

Enjoying the warm fire
while others lives are dire.

Give what you can
we can all make a plan.

Share a meal
help others to heal.

You are the difference
don't wallow in complacence.

Be gentle with the world
let your compassion unfurl.

A loaf of bread or a bowl of soup
warm the soul and help recoup.

You are but one person
but to someone you are the sun.

Let your light shine
especially when things are not fine.

Be kind
don't get left behind.

Change starts with only one
but is contagious long after you are gone.

Live. Love. Share. Appreciate.

Thank you Badger Soft Landings for providing thousands of meals to our beneficiaries in need.
It is a blessing to be able to give so many children and families ingredients to make themselves a hot meal!
Thanks to everyone who helps to put the packs together, making it so easy to hand out food packages come rain or shine. There is so much gratitude from the recipients that we continue to strive to keep hope alive. #georgechildwelfare #georgechildandfamilywelfare #Strive2Thrive #onelifeatatime #childprotection
