On Monday 29 December, the annual Outreach Christmas celebration for children from Khayelitsha was held at the Orthodox Centre in Cape Town.
The event is organised annually by the welfare committee under the auspices of His Eminence Archbishop Sergios, Metropolitan of Good Hope. This year the function was held at the Orthodox Centre in Lansdowne, and a total of fifty three children attended. One group from Khayelitsha, under the care of Father Joel, and another group of children from Gugulethu, under the supervision of Ntombi Magantse.
The group was served lunch and refreshments. After lunch the children from the Nontsikelelo project performed African and contemporary dance and song led by the leader of the group, Ntombi Magantse and her drum. The day was enjoyed by all and before leaving each child received a parcel with toiletries and other gifts which were generously by members of the Greek Orthodox Community.
The Welfare committee would like to thank all those who generously donated items and money and also a big “thank-you” to those who arrived on the day to assist.
