Volunteers colouring the world with compassion

Volunteers colouring the world with compassion

Volunteering is the art of making a difference through the canvas of kindness, colouring the world with compassion, one selfless act at a time.
During the celebration of International Volunteers Week, we seized the chance to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated volunteers who selflessly offer their valuable time to support the elderly at the HSFA. It’s a genuine blessing to have so many compassionate souls within our community. Your kindness and unwavering commitment are deeply appreciated. To mark the occasion, we gathered for a delightful festive lunch together. Also thank you GERATEC for a wonderful spread of deliciousness

We were filled with Christmas cheer having Tish and Denise grace us with their singing talents during our carols singing gatherings across our Frail Care, Assisted Living, and Independent Living units. Every resident joined in the songs, spreading festive cheer. We shared treats, tea, and cake, making the moments even more delightful. Thank you to two special Somerset West ladies Tish and Denise as well as John on audio and Margo on piano.

Wild Dogs and Honey Badgers?

Wild Dogs and Honey Badgers?

A while back our Independent Living residents were treated to a surprise visit from the Rhino Ladies Rugby Team all the way from the USA! Vonke House buzzed with excitement as the team shared jerseys, exchanged gifts, and cherished precious moments with our residents. What’s truly heartening is that these connections didn’t end there—WhatsApp became a bridge, allowing ongoing communication and nurturing of these newfound friendships.
The immense joy and positivity from this encounter encouraged not just a return visit but an expansion! This time, it wasn’t just the Rhino Ladies; the Cape Town Wild Dogs and the Honey Badgers joined in, spreading their warmth to the Support Centre, Mountview, Silver Oaks Lodge, Robari Lodge, and a return to Vonke House! Laughter, songs, and a rugby-themed twist on “pass-the-parcel” filled the air, making each moment unforgettable.
A special nod of gratitude goes to Pepsi Combrinck, a cherished HSFA resident and the mother of Rhinos Rugby Academy director, Ryno Combrinck. Her inspiration sparked these wonderful visits, Thank you, Pepsi https://academy.rhinosrugby.com/ https://rugbytens.com/cape-town-wild-dogs/
