Rand Aid reaches out to Jordan House

Some of the Rand Aid care team with the director of Jordan House, Pearlene Meadows, (second from right) and some of the residents.

Rand Aid driver Frans Masalesa and colleagues Bianca Richards, Lee-Ann Ramathibela, Debbie Christen and Elphin Lodge residents Marlene Gordon, Krys Geyser, Marge Venter and Vera Oosthuizen delivered hand-knitted blankets, clothes, grocery items, crockery, shoes and other treats to the residents of Jordan House Old Age Home on August 21.

The blankets were the result of a knit-a-thon for Mandela Day, organised by Rand Aid’s Ron Smith Care Centre Activities Team.

Knitted squares were then sewn together to make the blankets, especially meant for the residents of Jordan House.

The caring team from Rand Aid also brought along specially-made iced chocolate muffins and biscuits and shared these at tea with the 80 residents.

The director of Jordan House, Pearlene Meadows, thanked the visitors for taking the time to come all the way out to Westbury to see them and for their generosity and kindness.

She said the donation will go a long way towards adding to the comfort and well-being of their residents.

She went on to say that as an NGO which cares for the disadvantaged elderly and frail, there are many challenges they face, and sometimes it is worrying when there is a shortage of food, clothing, and cleaning and personal hygiene supplies.

“But then angels like yourselves come along and supply us with exactly what we need at that moment. God bless you for caring for our family here at Jordan House.”
