Hand Me Down with SA Adventure – October 2012

After the Hand Me Down distribution in August, it was back to business as usual, with a purpose though!  Our next Hand Me Down was to be 12th October, and the donations were rolling in.  Much time has been spent behind the scenes, sorting and packing the donated clothes.  Last minute donations had come in and the dedicated volunteers work late into the night to sort and pack the clothes.  It is a labour of love, done with a good heart and great excitement.

Friday dawns with pouring rain, which does not dampen our spirits, we know we are on a mission and will not be swayed.  Together with our core team we have three new guest volunteers.    This distribution is very special as it is Matilda’s inaugural trip!  Matilda is Hand Me Down’s latest team member, a beautifully resorted Landy 110!  We arrive at Maliba Mountain Lodge just before 8.00 pm with the last hour or so driving in the dark.  Our new volunteers have no idea of the scenery around us.  Tomorrow will reveal the beauty of Lesotho.  Besides the natural beauty there are the wonderful people of Lesotho who have won our hearts.
