A GROUP of Malabar women are not your regular housewives.
These 10 mothers and grandmothers spread love, hope and warmth among the residents of The House of Resurrection Children’s Haven in Salsoneville.
The arts and crafts group at the Malabar Home of the Aged provided the haven with tracksuits, blankets, pillows and baby clothing.
Jaya Bhana and the late Vasanti Nisha, who died just two months ago, founded the group two years ago.
The group of do-gooders, who are not residents of the old age home, meet there every Wednesday.
“If you can spend your time doing good it is worth more than spending your money,” said Bhana.
After visiting the children at the haven the group organised a raffle which raised R1500 to buy materials for their project. The machines they use and some of the materials have been sponsored.
Administrator at the House of Resurrection, Reverend Nicolette Leonard said they were so grateful for the work the group had done for them.
“Times are tough, but through the Lord little miracles like this do happen. It is easy to give money but not so easy to give up one’s time.”
