MJ – Request for Refilwe Community Project (please see if you can help)

7 November 2013

Hello everyone

It’s that time of year again and I come ‘hat in hand’ to ask for a donation in the form of a small gift for a child at Refilwe Community Project, a home for orphaned, abandoned and abused children where I do play therapy and counseling.

We have decided to give the children, 35 in total, a small Xmas party on 30 November. I am going to do party packs but we thought it would be more special if each child received an age appropriate gift. If you are able it will be greatly appreciated but the maximum to be spent is R25. Some suggestions are a bar of soap and a toothbrush or deodorant and a pen or a hair clip and lip ice. I attach a wish list from the foster parents for more ideas. Thanks everyone but please don’t feel obliged.




Hi Marjane,

I hope this message finds you well! Finally, I have the list of children for you. So sorry about the delay! Unfortunately we are closing from the 13th December. Are there any other dates you are able to come out? I also attached the wish list for the God parent program just to give you a few ideas.

I look forward to hearing from you! Have a lovely day!!!
