Our Lesotho friends are usually on the receiving end in Lesotho. Today they were on the giving side as they joyfully handed out winter packs to kids from “God Cares”. Not even crutches and a cast stopped KeKe!!!
The colorful backpacks were filled with a blanket, hat (knit by friends in the USA), gloves, and a scarf. Much needed warm items to help the kids weather through a very chilly winter in South Africa. Thanks Up with Down’s, Sotheby’s, and friends of Anchor Your Life for making all this happen!!!
Help us help more kids in South Africa and Lesotho

As long as ever you can.
“By far the biggest concern and problem that we picked up during these evaluations is a lack of stimulation between children and parents. We found that this is mainly due to the fact that families lack books, toys, games and parental knowledge and guidance. Children that are not in school yet hang around the streets playing with dirty water or with anything they can find in the streets.
Because of these circumstances we found a big delay in reaching their milestones compared to other children their own age. We found low muscle tone and muscle bulk, poor balance, core stability, coordination and proprioception. These toddlers all appear smaller than their age, weak and with very little muscle strength. They are cognitively behind and struggle with concentration.
Children learn through playing and get stronger through repetition. Due to the vast number of children that we have seen in Syferfontein, we feel that putting up a playground with the correct and necessary equipment to address the above mentioned problems it would be a good start to help them develop.” – Bertha DuPlessis and Karen LeRoux
