A HUGE thank you to everyone!!

Medication for Free State farmers!

After fighting fires on their farms and trying to save their homes, animals and livelihood for days on end the farmers in Hertzogville, Hoopstad and Boshoff will certainly need some OTC medications for their burning eyes, throats, sinuses and so on that will be badly affected by being in smoke and soot for days on end, and as part of our relief effort to them we are delivering medication to them to help sooth their discomfort.

We cannot possibly imagine the stress and strain these effected farmers are under having to watch their farms and livelihood go up in smoke and being powerless to stop its destruction. +-130 000ha burned down effecting over 100 commercial farmers who had to watch over 1800 head of livestock burn to death…..

This absolutely fantastic OTC Medication donation was given to us specially for the Free State farmers by Dr Attie van Wyk and his wife Walda of Busamed and Pieter and Marisca of The Local Choice Pharmacy Village. You are true heroes, thank you very much.

People like Dr Attie and Pieter together with their wives, make it possible for us to make a small difference in the life’s of these farmers and their families when they need it most.

We salute these brave farmers and we will do our little bit to make their lives a bit easier, so they can concentrate on getting back on their feet and buy feed for their remaining animals.

The 3 tons of food and medicine we are taking through to the Free State on Monday is our small way of showing these farmers that they are not alone or forgotten.

Pediatric care Africa will and without exception respond to any disaster we are asked to assist with, regardless of the type and cause of the disaster.

Week full of disasters big and small!!

A hectic week with huge demand for medical assistance where we had to take care of a number of children requiring medical attention, and thanks to FoodForward SA the kitchen stores at Soli-Deo-Gloria Care Centre Lydenburg is full of food and they are especially grateful for the special treats such as biscuits, coffee, cremora, Sanitary pads and a large delivery of 45kg margarine are all things that we rarely have to give to the people that require food assistance from us.

125kg of chicken and 45 dozen eggs will keep the folks at Soli deo Gloria well stocked with protein.

As the weekend approach we are getting ready to leave on an emergency relief and fact finding mission to Hertzogville and surrounding areas in the Free state on Monday, after the disastrous veldfires which caused +-130 000 hectares to go up in flames, destroying 130+ farms in its path and is reportingly still burning in some areas. We will take emergency response food of 3 tons with us and is planning to return 3 times at later intervals, as apparently especially the game farmers who couldn’t move their animals will have to spend huge amounts of money on food for their animals as all the grass and brush are destroyed, and due to this unexpected event may not be able to look after themselves, their family and staff due to the extreme cost of purchasing feed for their animals.

We consider this fire a disaster, and we will be there to help the farmers in whatever way we can….

Together we can do much more..!!
