After a blessed year in 2017, most of us could take some time off over the Christmas season to rest and recharge for another exciting year that lies ahead.
We had not forgotten about the children of Blikkiesdorp and early this year we donated stationery and paper to the kids who had burrowed a deep place in our hearts.
Our friend Clarina, that drives the Animal Ambulance and looks after the four legged animals of Blikkiesdorp knows most of the children and they love and respect her. These children are more often than not the ones who bring the sick or hurt animals to her to help mend. It is to these children that we decided to give the much needed stationery so that they may also start their new school year with at least some of the required items on the school’s list.
We wish you all the best for 2018 and may you too make a difference in others lives.
Each year, at the Law Society’s AGM and Conference, the Society recognises the candidates who have achieved the highest marks for each of the professional examinations.
For the past financial period, Leigh Vencencie has achieved the highest mark in the Northern, Western and Eastern Cape provinces for the Conveyancing Examination.
The Law Society bestowed an Award upon her at the Gala dinner event held in East London recently. A proud moment for MHI.
Jurgens celebrated his 50th birthday this month. He was spoiled by his girls with a cake, a special breakfast and gifts. We gave him the rest of the day off. We wish him health and happiness for the next 50!
For the past few years now we have collected packages filled with love for MES. They provide life skills and other workshops to the homeless communities of Bellville, Parow, Durbanville and Brackenfell. At their yearend function MES presents these gifts together with a certificate to celebrate them enrolling in the program and taking responsibility for their lives so that they may start a journey of healing and rehabilitation.
We thank Crystal Cool Logistix, Uphando Forensic Services, all the personnel at MHI and their families and friends for helping us reaching our target of filling 79 boxes for this year.
May you all have a blessed festive season, travel safely and may 2018 be full of new adventures!
