Batho ba Lerato, Thaba Nchu, Archdiocese of Bloemfontein
Batho ba Lerato in Thaba Nchu in the Archdiocese of Bloemfontein has reported that the project was able to renovate houses for 18 families caring for orphans and vulnerable children.
The project carefully selected the families most in need of assistance, and renovations took care of cracks, roofing repairs, replacing of windows and doors and painting. In some instances one roomed ready-made shacks were purchased and distributed to those in need of basic shelter. The labour for the renovation project was provided by the young people who had attended skills training in building, welding and plumbing in the diocese of Bethlehem. These young people had themselves been registered in the Batho Ba Lerato orphan and vulnerable children project until the age of eighteen.
