Diplomats as volunteers

On Sunday 18 December 2016, House Gracia, a place of safety for children in the North of Pretoria received a visit from Diplomats who made donations of stationery, beauty treatments and entertainment for the children.

Jevan Pillay of the High Commission of Mauritius said, “The most important thing here is not the financial contribution but the contribution in kind of us diplomats as volunteers.”

High Commissioner designate of Mauritius, Mr P Vijaye Lutchmun also joined in interacting with the children. He said it was important for the children to be able to realise their potential and become responsible citizens.

Mr Terry Rose from Seychelles (Charge d'Affaires C.I) and Mrs Nivedita Bauhadoor-Pillay (spouse of Jevan Pillay) sang songs, painted finger and toe nails, decorated cupcakes and gave lessons in playing the guitar. The clown, the magic shows, face painting and puppet shows brought a festive cheer to House Gracia.

 

 

Trudie Henderson, the house mother explained that there are currently over 70 children who were rescued from abusive parents or were abandoned that are given refuge by the home. The objective is to allow the child to grow up as normally as possible in a home that provides shelter, security and comfort.
