September NEWSLETTER 2015

September has come and gone leaving us with the summer heat. The month has been a good one here at the house. Our swimming pool is finally being used, goodbye to the cold months, the girls enjoy a swim after every hot day. The girls once did us very proud with their school work for the third term. Two girls went for matric farewell! They were gorgeous!

Admissions
The house has welcomed three new adorable and intelligent girls into the Fatima House family. These girls have settled in well and have been well received by both staff and residents of the Fatima House. All programs are still effectively and efficiently running. There are two non-scholars at house and they are kept busy with basic skills and computers.
Heritage
Heritage day was celebrated through an educational program where the clients were sharing their unique cultures with one another. The program was very much informative and the girls learnt a lot from each other as well as from the facilitator.
The spirit of Ubuntu was emphasised in all the presentations signifying how important it is in all cultures.
The Fatima house girls were also taken on a trip during this heritage month to the Hartebeespoort. The girls learnt a lot there and really enjoyed themselves thanks to the Good Shepherd Sisters.
Fatima house had a day out with the children from Madidi. It was a beautiful day and was well spent. The clients enjoyed seeing the energy that the little children from Madidi had and this was the highlight of their day as they got to engage and play with them.

The girls enjoying themselves with one of the sisters at the Hartebeespoort zoo, and the children from Madidi made this joint outing one that the clients don’t intend on forgetting anytime.

Annual General Meeting
The Good Shepherd Fatima House also held its Annual General Meeting on the 27th of September. The event was a success. Successes and challenges of the previous year were discussed, the future of Fatima House still looks bright.

Thank youto all the friends of the Good Shepherd Fatima House for helping us once again in assisting these girls. We wouldn’t have made it without your support.

Three of our girls gave birth to beautiful babies. Here is a snippet of some of our Babies

These girls were all successfully reunified with their families. We would love to congratulate them for the courage they showed and we wish them all the best in their future endeavours. We hope that the good Lord will continue to bless and guide them through out their life's journeys. Two baby girls were normal birth while the boy was a C-section.

Adorable, healthy and loved, Fatima house' wish for every child- "one person is more value than the whole world" St. Mary Euphrasia, foundress of the Good Shepherd Sisters in France.

 

To our readers, we would love to urge you to make this world a better place, there is a lot that can be done to help not only the girls at Fatima House, but the world at large. Visit a centre of your choice, spend the day with some children or victims of crime, and show love. Let us join hands and make this world a beautiful place.

We are playing a part, are you?

WOMENS MONTH CELEBRATIONS
The Good Shepherd Fatima House has over the years drawn the attention of well-wishers and we have constantly been blessed with donations of various types. Thanks once again to the friends of the Good Shepherd Fatima House for making this month a memorable one and for reaching out and assisting our girls. The girls received gifts from Metro Ministries Africa and we also received baby clothing from well-wishers. The girls also received beautiful jewelleries from Cape Town. They all looked so good and spoiled by the mere fact that they all had them on Sundays and whenever dressed up.
The girls also celebrated different cultures as part of the school’s fundraising!

Maintenance
We wish to renovate our lovely lappa from a thatched roof to a tiled one. We kindly appeal to you for references of any company that can assist us with both a quotation and the renovation itself. If you have any information kindly contact us.

Here is a word from one of the beneficiaries of the Good Shepherd Fatima House;


WE SHOW GREAT APPRECIATION AS YOU HAVE TAKEN YOUR TIME
ON THIS DAY TO MAKE THIS A SPECIAL DAY FOR US
IT’S NOT EVERYDAY THAT ONES PRESENCE BRINGS GREAT JOY

YOUR KIND GESTURE TODAY SHOWED US THAT THEY ARE A LOT OF
PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO CARE AND ARE WILLING TO SUPPORT
US AT OUR TIME OF NEED AND THAT WE ARE NOT ALONE

YOU ARE BLESSED ON THIS DAY AS YOU BROUGHT A GREAT SMILE
ON OUR FACES AND LEFT A MEMORY OF YOUR GREATNESS IN OUR
HEARTS …. (Written by: Thuli)

From the beneficiaries, Sisters, and staff of the Good Shepherd Fatima House we would love to express our gratitude to everyone out there who has supported us.
“Gratitude is the memory of the heart”. (St Mary Euphrasia – the foundress of the Sisters of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd)
