Visit to a safe house

We had the most inspiring visit to a safe house which is run as a charitable organisation by Sonja and her husband Gino.

All the children who attend the programs come from disadvantaged homes or for a variety of reasons are not safe at home.  The programs offered are pre school and after school care where children are either dropped off and collected from the safe house or an agreed meeting place. There were 50 children of a range of ages when we visited. The organisation also provides an outreach service to a number of families who are visited monthly.  Thirty men over sixty also attend a regular health clinic at the safe house.

We donated sporting goods, games, soft toys, clothes and a care package of food.
