Mears Team 1 – Day 5

Today was the final day for Team 1. We set off first thing from our digs at Plaaskombuis and headed to Sithabile Orphanage in the centre of Benoni.

Sithabile is one of the Orphanages where we first carried out work back in 2010, and which Footprints subsequently adopted

Half the team carried out repairs and painting work to the front of the boys dorm, whilst the rest of the team planted vegetables.

The children were very happy to receive sweets from the team before we left!

A good week with yet another great team who bonded very well. The time went quickly and sadly it has come to an end but not without much laughter as well as tears and a heap of passion through the work that was achieved by the team.
