Although the landscape and wildlife of Cape Town, South Africa is beautiful, the living conditions for millions in the surrounding townships is not. In the post Apartheid era, racism, violence, unemployment, extreme poverty and HIV/Aids are the reality for children and their families. We have an opportunity to make an impact in the townships of Paarl, a community where children are abandoned by their parents and where hope has worn thin. Join us in an amazing effort to distribute food to hungry children, conduct a children’s VBS program and help build a playground at the Tiffany center….which is a place of hope in the community! You will come back with a huge heart for the amazing people of Paarl!
