The PFP Team, led by Celeste Nel, had the privilege of visiting the Lighthouse Baby Shelter in December 2022 as part of our Annual Charity Drive. The experience was truly heart-warming and one that we will never forget.
Upon arriving at the orphanage, we were greeted by the staff and children with open arms. They were thrilled to have us there and were eager to share their stories and spend quality time with us.
We also had the opportunity to interact with the children and play games with them. They were incredibly friendly and full of energy. We took the time to speak to the staff and learn more about the work they do to support the children and provide them with a loving and nurturing environment.
One of the highlights of the visit was when we gave the children their Christmas gifts - The air was filled with excitement and laughter as the children tore into their presents revealing much needed clothing, school stationary, as well as outdoor games and toys. It was truly a special and humbling moment to see their faces light up with pure joy. We spent the afternoon kicking soccer balls, throwing frisbees and getting to know each of the children and their back stories.
The visit to the Lighthouse Baby Shelter was a humbling and eye-opening experience. It was a reminder of the importance of giving back and supporting those in need. The staff and children at the orphanage are truly inspiring, and it was an honour to be able to spend some time with them.
The PFP team are committed to making a positive impact in our community, and we are already planning our Annual Charity Drive for 2023. We believe that every child deserves a chance to grow and thrive, and we will continue to support our community and children in any way we can.
