Introducing South African Kids to a German Easter Tradition
Introducing South African Kids to a German Easter Tradition

 Our volunteers Regina and Andreas were on a mission! Because of Easter, they thought they should introduce the children in Manenberg to the German Easter tradition. Armed with brushes, colour and eggs they wanted to paint eggs with the kids because this Easter tradition is not as common or popular in South Africa as it is in Germany. Obviously, all 40 kids had a great time - where else do you get the opportunity to design your own egg? Also the fact that as much of the colour could be found on the cloths of the youngsters as on the eggs is enough proof of the creativity of the kids. However, most of the colourful eggshells just had little time to be gazed at as such an artwork of food is a big temptation to small children mouths.

For several years now, HOPE Cape Town works in close cooperation with the German AIDS Foundation. Therefore, it was a great pleasure to welcome Mrs Renate Siebenhaar, Member of the Board of Trustees of the German AIDS Foundation, together with other interested visitors on Monday, the 25th of March 2013. The HOPE Cape Town employees, Kerstin Behlau and Pauline Jooste introduced the guests at first to the work of HOPE Cape Town at the Ithemba ward at the Tygerberg Hospital. Afterwards they visited the clinic in Delft and the Township Blikkiesdorp. There, the visitors were introduced to the work of the HOPE Cape Town community health workers in community clinics and in the communities. All in all, this was for the visitors and especially for Mrs Renate Siebenhaar and her work at the German AIDS-Foundation a very useful experience and of particular importance.

 

Bavaria on a visit to South Africa
Bavaria on a visit to South Africa
On the 28 February 2013 the President of the Bavarian State Parliament, Mrs Barbara Stamm, and Vice-Presidents, Mr Reinhold Bocklet, Mr Franz Maget, Mr Peter Meyer and Mr. Jörg Rohde and other members of the Presidium of the Bavarian State Parliament visited HOPE Cape Town. The visit program included a presentation about the work of HOPE Cape Town in the Township of Blikkiesdorp by Rev. Fr. Stefan Hippler and a visit of the Ithemba ward at Tygerberg children hospital. During the walk through Blikkiesdorp the German guests got to know the work which is done by HOPE Cape Town and gained insights into the tough life that people are facing day by day in the township. This was followed by lunch at the Tygerberg Hospital during which the interested delegation members asked further questions and entered into dialogue with Father Hippler and the other employees of HOPE Cape Town about the many different tasks of the organization.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the delegation for the generous donation which they gave to Father Hippler.
