We are at St Anthony’s Child and Youth Care Centre, Blaauwbosch, Newcastle, KZN. Soon to hand over gifts to the children
On Thursday, 24 November, we visited Baitul Hafiza in Tsakane, overseen and funded by Hello Foundation.
It was midday, and hundreds of adults and children braved the scorching heat, awaiting a plate of food, some queuing from as early as 10am.
Hello Foundation apart from seeing to various needs of the community, runs a daily feeding scheme. Thus, we sponsored a meal (chicken and rice dish) for 250 people; 150 kids and 100 adults.
With CoVid19 being very much prevalent, we distributed 150 sanitizers and 150 super cool kiddies masks.
We also chose Baitul Hafiza to kick off the second leg of our brand new project, CAMPAIGN DEW!
A project directed at assisting young women experiencing period poverty.
Twenty four bales of sanitary (Eternity) pads, which totals 576 packs were handed out to young ladies experiencing period poverty... and with it, a powerful message resounded ...
”restore dignity and empower women”
It was a day, wonderfully spent. We had made new friends, created valuable relationships and once more realised how very fortunate we are.
We are humbled to have been given the opportunity to work the Hello Foundation and look forward to future projects with them.

The beginning of yet another valued relationship...
Mums and babies of Charlotte Maxeke Hospital, Wards 184, 186, 187 and Antenatal, were our recipients today...
...a little something to add to their happiness. As Matron Mothwane exclaimed , today you are blessed to leave with two gifts, your baby .. and a wonderful baby hamper!
One mum in particular wasn’t as fortunate as the others’. We were quietly told that she had lost her baby. She watched us hand out the hampers, her expression vacant, and all we felt, was an indescribable bleakness.
Non the less, we gifted the bereaved mum, a new blouse and offered words of comfort. As we left, a smile appeared on her face as she softly offered thanks.
And so the Almighty had blessed US with much needed bounties ... the gift of gratitude and the gift of giving a little of ourselves.
Much love ...
The Colours of Hope Team

Good day,please help me.
A little surprise amidst the CoVid normalcy.
The Colours of Hope Youth Team spent their Thursday morning at Chris Hani Baragwanath hospital, spending time with little ones who’ve sadly been afflicted with cancer.
Mrs Aida and Mr Lawrence (social workers at the hospital), Dr Mari (Oncologist in charge), as well as several helpful interns from the PR department delightfully welcomed us.
The little ones had the option of either red or blue bags, each pack containing a sanitizer, notebook, colouring book and colouring pencils, a small, toothbrush and tooth paste, facecloth, a pair of socks, a bandanna and a yummy snack.
Once again, a heartfelt thank you to Dr Minty for donating adorable, reusable face masks, specifically sewn for the kids.
The little ones took their time choosing the masks they liked best...Minnie Mouse, Spiderman, polka dots... Masking up never looked this good! Several little boys carefully chose masks to specially match their outfits... how cute ?!
A thoughtful Mr Lawrence, who (for sanitary purposes) gathered all the kids able to leave their rooms, in their private play area so we could spend some time with them.
Many of the kids in the oncology wards have been hospitalized for many days or weeks, and as such, don’t often get to see faces from outside the hospital, hence it was such a treat for them!
A member of our Youth Team especially bonded with a four year old Aaliyah, who has now lost all her hair.
The cutie is currently close to the end of her chemo treatment. When asked about it, Aaliyah excitedly shouted with a hand in the air, “Yes!! Almost done!’
She chatted to us from the rocking horse she was contently seated on, curling the horse’s mane with her new colouring pencils.
The kids were overjoyed with their packs...a little girl mentioned that she definitely planned on hiding her new colouring book from her little brother, who always ends up tearing his own.
The CoH Youth Team is never more excited for projects than on the days we spend time with little ones. Much love and respect to these little soldiers. Gratitude for health and small miracles is what makes us whole.
...and so we left... saturated with warmth and fuzziness.
Thank you to the staff at Chris Hani Baragwanath, as well as the parents who gave us permission to take pictures and spend the morning with their kids.
You absolutely made our day.

Dr Fathima Minty
On a rather chilly Spring Day, the team decided to spread some Spring cheer to mums at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.
As financial constraints were experienced by many during the CoVid lockdown period, we thought it necessary to ease the burden of new mums once more.
The Colours of Hope Baby project is one dear to our hearts, particularly during these difficult times.
Three wards of overjoyed mums (Wards 65 and 67) and a deeply thankful Matron TP Ntlhabane offered words of gratitude for the distribution.
A gran who could not take care of her newborn grandson was especially grateful for the hamper as the little one would now be on his way to a new home with a lovely gift.
An “Awwwwww” moment rippled through Ward 66 as nurses delightfully opened the bag of the tiniest knitted items.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to a special volunteer from Little Favoured Ones ... the knit wear for the preemees was beyond adorable.
Thank you kindly Dr Minty, for the donation of 100 reusable face masks which we added to our hampers.
Meeting the mums of two sets of twins and a set of triplets was a perfect ending to our day... And so the cold was melted away by the warmth of pure fuzziness.

Qurbani in Yemen is completed Alhamdulillah.
A little parcel of meat clutched in the hands of a child in Bajil, Hudaida, Yemen. Who knows when they will have meat again or whether their condition will ever change?
May the Almighty accept this from everyone. A small drop in the ocean of the hundreds of thousands who have not eaten meat in months if not years. Nonetheless, we hope it gives some ease.
Continue your support and donations to Colours of Hope. Lillaah, Sadaqah and Zakaah accepted. Every bit helps.

“Smiling in your brother’s face is an act of charity. So is enjoining good and forbidding evil, giving directions to the lost traveller, aiding the blind and removing obstacles from the path.”
