These pics were taken by Denise Andrews when the ladies made bags for the American School Scouts.

They have electricity in their homes but it’s also nice to sit outside under the tree and it is good advertising for them to be seen by those passing in the roadJ A lot of their monthly income is doing repairs, shortening pants etc in the township. So any old machines you know of we welcome. We are currently looking for the treadle part of an old machine – the machine we have is good but the treadle has passed on.

The September dental hygiene drive proved successful, and parishioners donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, towels and face cloths. SSVP distributed these items to grateful families in Diepsloot. Families in X12 broke into spontaneous clapping when they were told of this gift from the Bryanston parish.

LIONS Club of Midrand provided eye screening for some of the Diepsloot women in September. Thanks to Lies for organising the visit.

Sikholiswe is delighted with her new glasses.

Bryan Rix, a member of St Vincent de Paul was instrumental in providing a tap and hosepipe to enable more effective vegetable garden watering at the SSVP container in X12. Sam (on left) is one of the patrollers from the Community Police Forum; the Society works with the CPF in Diepsloot X12.
