Boxes full of love

Social worker Ruth Nkosi and Oliver Quambusch wrap new blankets around the children.

Hotel Hope Ministries were delighted when representatives of the Character Group South Africa donated various much-needed items to their organisation, ahead of the chilly winter season.

The non-profit organisation is dedicated to opening their hearts to orphaned mothers and children to ensure they grow up in a happy and healthy home. The handover took place at Hotel Hope Ministries in Melville and was truly an exciting occasion for everyone who was present.

The brand new donated items are welcomed by members of Hotel Hope Ministries.

Character Group director Saul Weiner said their organisation was very supportive of welfare initiatives given the high number of social problems in the country.

“We are involved in various initiatives and homes that we look after on a regular basis,” said Weiner. “Today our team decided that we are going to give our a big donation to Hotel Hope and we are very proud to support and help look after the children. We donated items such as towels, blankets, facecloths, bedding, winter warmers and toiletries.

“There’s a nice mixture of items that we hope the children will enjoy and hopefully they will get some good use out of it.”

Hotel Hope Ministries founder and managing director Oliver Quambusch said they were very happy and excited to receive the donation.

“The donated items will be allocated to our two homes we are currently running, plus we are also going to bless a number of other charities with some of the items such as the Door of Hope, Childline and Afrika Tikkun,” said Quambusch.

Children eagerly wear their colourful caps donated by a generous organisation.

He added that for the approaching winter season they welcomed any donations and volunteers from the public.

“We would also appreciate people to volunteer their time to the children on a regular basis since [Hotel Hope Ministries] is a volunteer-led organisation.”
