When: 5 December 2019
We spent a wonderful time with the children of Clever Kids in Ruyterwacht. They loved the hot dog rolls & fruit thanks to Shiloh food, as well as the ice cream lollies (a real treat from Frozen Fairy). We thank our contributor, Marco Polo, for their heart-felt assistance to the i-Foundation in feeding Clever Kids on a daily basis. A big hug to the staff of Intercape Cape Town depot for attending and assisting to make this day great!
Hanli Marais, on behalf of the i-Foundation
"Wow, what an unbelievable touching experience! No matter what your circumstances are – you choose the person you would like to be. The children at Clever kids showed so much respect and was so grateful for what the I foundation did for them during their Christmas party. It was so much fun watching them climbing and sliding down the jumping castles – their laughter and squeals of joy touched my heart. The staff at Clever Kids are God sent – and will be blessed. Thanks to the I foundation for the huge role they play at Clever Kids.
Blessings." - Adre Zandberg
"It was heart-warming to just spend time with children whom are not your own, and to be able to put a smile on their faces and to see their enjoyment. To see that there are still people who cares and who makes a difference in the lives of our land’s future is amazing. And they definitely are making a difference, so much so that children who used to be pupils there, and who are now studying at university, still comes back to them… I had the privilege of meeting one of them☺
God’s blessings on all of them for doing His good work. Amen." - Angelic Vlotman
"I loved seeing the kids just being in a space where they can be themselves and have fun as an innocent child should."
