Teddy bear project: delighted faces tell it all

teddybears

Beit Emanuel’s Kehilla Committee handed over about 140 knitted teddy bears at the children’s ward of the Raheema Moosa hospital this week. The expression on this child’s face tells it all… Another 70 teddies will be handed over to Edenvale Hospital.

Thembalami is a Rand Aid-funded care centre. Some of the volunteers have never knitted before. Thembalami volunteers in the photo are, from the back, Cynthia Liptz, Lara Hurwitz, Elize Raath, Doreen Calder, Mariaan Venter, Heather Abrams and Mongalo Ngoasheng. Our thanks to all of them.
