Boksburg News: Sponsors help babies to be snug in a rug

Members from the Anglican Church of Boksburg, who head the Oliver Tambo Memorial Hospital baby project, have thanked some of their donors who assisted them throughout the year.

Seen here is Deacon Barbara Morrison from the Anglican Church of Boksburg holding some of the hampers comprising basic baby clothing, blankets, baby wipes and other products that are given to the mothers at OR Tambo Hospital.

The project started in 2013, after the church noticed needy mothers leaving the hospital with children wrapped in newspapers or putting them into shopping bags.

Every two weeks, with the help of the community, church members and various organisations have handed out hampers of basic clothing, blankets, baby wipes and other products to the mothers of the newborns.

Schoolchildren give blood to save lives VICTORY PARK – Da La Salle Holy Cross College youngsters are enthusiastic about donating blood.

The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) visited Da La Salle Holy Cross College on 22 June for its annual blood drive donation that takes place every term.

Principle of the college, Atholl Murray said many of the schoolchildren, teachers and management staff donated blood in response to the service’s urgent call two years ago and has been hosting drives ever since.

Blood is especially needed due to the school holidays and a number of people will be travelling.

“The learners are encouraged to give of themselves, their time selflessly and enthusiastically in order to help their community and each other. This is achieved through various outreach and community service projects; to share the responsibility they have to the world. The learners also encourage each other to be the best person they can be and to develop a commitment of service to others,” said Murray.

He added that the schoolchildren are encouraged to strive to ensure that the rights of all are held sacred. The school also challenges other schools in the area to do the same for a good cause.

VICTORY PARK – De La Salle Holy Cross College celebrates Clean Your Room Day by making the environment better. Cailin Connell, environment committee member, congratulates Clara Heise who won a meal voucher, sponsored by Doppio Zero. De La Salle Holy Cross College celebrated Clean Your Room Day recently – unsurprisingly great news for the parents.The celebration, however, was not the best of news for hoarders and children whose rooms were unkempt. Schoolchildren were asked to roll up their sleeves, clean their rooms and donate clothes and stationery to the college’s various outreach projects. This included toys and sports equipment for the college’s youth outreach projects as well as old cell phones, chargers and computers for the environment committee’s e-waste collection. The names of everyone who contributed to this initiative were put into a lucky draw. The teacher in charge of the environment committee, Liz van der Westhuizen thanked the community and Doppio Zero for their continued support of the committee’s initiatives. “Our learners and their parents always give so generously and with open hearts to our various outreach and environment initiatives.”

VICTORY PARK – De La Salle Holy Cross College High School collects baby hampers for mothers in need.

De La Salle Holy Cross College High School outreach committee collected much-needed baby supplies for new mothers of Oliver Tambo Memorial Hospital.

This was after the schoolchildren were given a motivational presentation by Deacon Barbara Morrison, who founded the Tambo Memorial Baby Pack Network. Morrison collects and delivers baby hampers to the mothers of newborn babies at the hospital .

Many of these mothers are completely unprepared for their newborns and, as Morrison shared with the schoolchildren, there are, unfortunately, mothers who have absolutely nothing to take their little ones home in.

“We have seen this with our own eyes, they either roll them in a piece of rag or a bit of their own clothing,” she said. “It is very humbling to give such a mother a hamper and watch the expression of joy on her face when she realises what is in the parcel.”
