We arrived at the Old age home at 10am, where we were greeted by old people, some looking sad and hungry for love and attention and others excited and curious for the visitors coming to meet with them.

We served them tea and cake and also handed out branded AGSA bags, containing toiletries, AGSA T/shirts and biscuits and sweet treats. The gratitude on the faces of these old people were priceless, one lady even started singing and dancing, she must have been over 80, but she could move her old frail body. This was a sight to behold.

The oldest lady at the home was 104 years old, can you believe it... we were in awe that she was still sitting up and smiling at us.

Our next stop was at the Sakhuluntu Children’s Home, located in Duncan Village, a small, very poor location in East London.

Here we were greeted by excited and eager kids, ages ranging from 2 to 16 years old.

We handed our McDonalds kiddies meals, toys and party packs to the kids. After lunch, the kids treated us to dancing and singing, what a treat this was for us. The girls and boys showed such confidence in their dancing skills and were so proud and excited to entertain us.  The boys even treated us to some gumboot dancing. What a way to end our afternoon!

The innocence and beauty of life was evident in the faces of the old people and youngsters.

As an office it just made us realize, how precious life is, and how simple acts of kindness and humility, can have a profound impact on the lives of others who are less fortunate.
