A heartfelt thank
you goes out to Gea Schmidt, a long term sponsor and friend from the
Netherlands, for all her kindness and support over the years.
Gea tells her
“I met Florence Dodovu in 1998 for the first time. My husband, my
daughter and I visited her, accompanied by a teacher from the University of
the Western Cape in Mfuleni, when she still lived in a shack made of wood.
There she took already care of a group of small children.
In 1999 we stayed for a longer period in Cape Town and I had the
opportunity to meet her several times. We went shopping and had lunch
together. We even organised a Christmas party, with a ‘real’ Dutch Father
Christmas, presents and music (songs and guitar by our son). Since then I
kept in contact with Florence and donated money frequently. Whenever I was
in South Africa we met, and I could buy her groceries and other things that
she needed, like a mobile phone. I also sent Christmas presents every year
for the children.
In 2009 I contacted ‘helping hands’ for her, for fundraising. I feel proud
of the good work Florence is doing and support she is receiving from her
friends Niki and Martin. The last time I saw her was in 2009, but my
daughter visited het this year when she spent her holidays in SA. From the
Netherlands I will keep on sending donations”.
