Kids helping kids - Paarl & Stellenbosch facilties

On Saturday a group of 14 consisting of MAB supporters and students from the Lalela Project painted the murals of two child-friendly. These facilities assist child-victims of rape and abuse. The first facility is at the Stellenbosch Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences and the second is the waiting area at Paarl Hospital. Lalela Project is an art project working with children in the informal settlements of Houtbay and Kommetjie. It was a wonderful experience to see how young people are reaching out to help the younger kids in need.

Both these projects are sponsored by Roman's Pizza as part of the "Wipe that smile on your face". All were ecstatic when they were treated to pizza for lunch, courtesy Stellenbosch Roman's Pizza.
