To our dear staff and colleagues ❤️
How absolutely proud you made us this past weekend. No job was too big or too small and you all did whatever was needed to do. There were many comments and compliments that were leveled at you for your friendliness, your passion, your servant hearts, and your vision. It was a great success because each one of you just did what was needed. Some staff, despite being sick, put on masks 😷 and carried on serving, and running around. You worked fast and efficiently, some offered to fetch and carry our visitors to the airport. You jumped in wherever you were needed, and you truly showed what teamwork is all about. So today there's a small surprise for us and that is a birthday cake 🎂 👏👏👏 Well done and "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US"! 🥳 The second surprise is a lunch for all staff that was gifted to us from Läkarmissionen at a very special place. 😊 Thank you so much! 🙏🏼🙏🏼
What a team! And this comes with the deepest, deepest gratitude and heartfelt thanks for all your work in preparation for and on the weekend. To us, you are not one in a million, you are all ONE OF A KIND! ❤️ Thank You! 🙏🏼🙏🏼

We are so thankful for the 30 years the organisation has been used by God to change lives for the better. What started as a vision, a R20 note and a passion for others have grown and developed to what it is today. This was acknowledged by heart-warming and touching messages of personal transformation and greetings from across the globe during a dinner with a following Celebration Service on Saturday evening.

Words are not enough to express our gratitude for decades of experiences, miracles, relationship building and growth. God has been with us every step of the way.

Our anniversary celebration weekend has come and gone with great success. There were tears, laughter, heartache, emotions from long lost friends re-connecting. It was marvellous. People came from Sweden, from Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg, new and old friends.

We heard about the work from before to now. We visited families in the communities who are our heroes, we had a successful first talk show ever, with some very funny moments. An Annual General Meeting, with GCF staff singing and launching their song which made my whole body go into goose bumps, a reveal of our new logo – Give a Child a Family Africa. Then a simple, but beautifully decorated dining hall with a tasty dinner for our VIP’s, Board and Senior Management. A wonderful Meet and Greet where we got to hear about our sponsors.

The children of UGU were not left out, as it was a closed event, where 125 children from other institutions enjoyed fun, games, silly soccer, hot dogs, fruit and what is a birthday without cake? The Saturday afternoon was a spit braai for all our stakeholders culminating in a Thanksgiving Service in the evening, also held virtually. Beautiful, successful weekend of new connections, re-establishing old connections. So many people sent wishes, videos, greetings, stories, these will be put to print and available on our website in time to come.

Beautiful time of celebrating the old, but moving into a new season with so many wonderful opportunities, but we need YOU!!! Get in with us on this journey, “everyone can do something” was the message – small things done with a great heart makes all the difference. What can you do to help children be in secure families, as PREVENTION is the new driving force?
