In case you wondered how the Abraham Kriel Children’s Nylstroom (AKK Nylstroom) coped during the challenging lockdown period, please read this short but sweet newsletter we compiled. Thank you very much for your contributions to our home! Each staff member and child greatly appreciates the impact that your contribution made to our home.

With donations to our Warm Winter Project, we could replace duvet inners. Thank you very much for each donation that made this possible! 

We Can launched a second campaign and supplied 92 food parcels consisting of vegetables, maize, soup and chicken. Thanks to everyone that contributed!

On 25 July 2020, the Christian Motorbike Association (CMA) visited the children’s home and gave dolls to every girl. That provided in their need to cherish and care for something.

Our children were barely back to school when the holidays started again! Some of our children have not attended school since 18 March this year. 

Our three matriculants are uncertain about what the future holds: dates for the record exams have been adjusted and the long-awaited matric dance is also in the balance. However, we are busy applying for two of our matriculants at various universities.

The lockdown claims its toll in terms of our staff’s emotional health. Over the past month, two staff members resigned and one of our children was hospitalised for depression.

A vacancy for residential parents has been filled. We are privileged to welcome Frik and Ina Botha all the way from the Cape Province. We look forward to their inputs in the lives of our children.

Crime also came knocking on our door: on 24 July one of our Toyota Quantum minibusses was stolen at the home!

The very popular singer, Corlea, and motivational speaker, image consultant and designer Elzaan van der Merwe, will present an online show  ̶  Hartklop van ’n Vrou  ̶  on 2 August 2020.
