I have been such a slacker at getting some pictures on my blog, so I am going to try and catch up on that and add a few pictures over the next few weeks. You might even want to go back to previous posts, because I will add the pictures to the correct posts.

To wet your appetite, here are a few sundry pictures that are certainly worth putting up!

Pictures from when I went to visit the baby centre and creche at Lindelani.

This little girl stole my heart. I had to remind myself that I couldn’t put her in my back pocket and bring her home. Rochelle was constantly telling me that she wasn’t an orphan! She had family …

Kyla and Jaimee each had a baby on their laps too.

This is the new classroom built, using traditional methods, for the creche. It’s located just outside the entrance to Lindelani. As a reminder, Lindelani is not much bigger than a football field, but houses around 7,000 people.

Everyone was encouraged to help with the build. They got the local young people involved too. The day I was there, they were having a ‘mud party’. The mud literally needs to be thrown onto the walls. But as you can see, the mud wasn’t limited to the walls only!
We want to try and raise some funds to build a second classroom, which they so desperately need. The cost is estimated at around £1,000. If you would like to contribute to our charity “Children of Africa”, please do so at www.cafonline.org. You can find full details of how in an earlier blog (http://beechwoodblog.blogspot.com/2009/08/donation-for-our-charity-children-of.html).
You might think that a mere £5 won’t make a difference, but I can tell you otherwise. A mere £5 will cover the price of all the nails, or a quarter of the paint needed for the classroom!
