During December 2017, the members of Wavecrest were encouraged to be part of the Shoe Box Project within the community.
Items in the boxes were to include those of personal hygiene, education, treasure and something sweet for the young children. The response was overwhelming. Rector Helpers along with some Young People, distributed the boxes to the children of an impoverished informal settlement called “Die Kat”, off Spine Road in Strandfontein.
The response received was that of sheer jubilation, gratitude and bliss. Those smiley faces and glistening eyes have left such a huge impact on the Young People that they have pledged to support them throughout the year.
