Fun for children and volunteers in Pretoria

On 29th March, Family Impact South Africa, along with volunteers from Hatfield Christian Church, ran their annual Fun Day for kids in the Lusaka area of Mamelodi East, Pretoria. The Church provided transport, lunch and arranged 44 volunteers through the Impact Mobilisation Division (IMD) who ran games, drama, activities and face painting. Individuals also sponsored toys and gifts for the children. The event was even bigger than last year, with over 200 children attending.

The day was not only refreshing, fulfilling and fun filled for the children involved, but was a very enriching experience for the volunteers as well. One of the volunteers shared:

“The outreach team and the children in Mamelodi had a fantastic day together. I was one of face fainting team members and had a privilege to give the children great happiness. It was fun and gave both the outreach team and the children meaningful moments.”
