Christmas at the Beach with Vulnerable Children

This Christmas, Africa Unite took 123 children from the disadvantaged communities of Nyanga, Phillipi, New Cross Roads, Hanova Park and refugee children from the shelter of Bonne Esperance. The children were from the ages of 3-6 years old. They were taken to spend a full day at Silver Stream Beach. Upon their arrival, they were given breakfast and lunch Awarness 369and were given a chance to draw and play. The highlight of the day was when they were able to go swimming, but were reluctant to come out of the water. The  16  Peer Educators assigned had to persuade the children to come out of the ocean! The day ended with the handover of gifts by Father Christmas.

The Christmas outing was a special moment that these children will never forget. Cape Town is a beautiful city surrounded by the ocean and mountains; however, these children have never had an opportunity to explore these wonders. After their return, the parents and caregivers thanked Africa Unite for providing this opportunity to their children. They mentioned that the children had escaped crime, rape and gangster-ism for the day, which is common in the communities where they are from.

Africa Unite would like to thank Breadline Africa for their continued support by providing the bus, food, breakfast and lunch, t-shirts, and gifts for the children.
