Feeding the Elderly

RUSTHOF OUtside The Bowl

We visited Rusthof Old Age Home on Friday, 23 October.

Rusthof is an integral part of Paarl and a very necessary institution for providing a residential facility and care for the aged. It has accommodation for 104 people as well as limited accommodation for ill patients.

Their goals are:

* To continually review their programs to ensure that they are relevant to the needs of the communities and to present programs that is relevant to this sector of the population.

* To provide a facility that offer the needs of the aged and infirm members of the population and to improve their quality of life and to create hope for their elderly and infirm by espousing values that will assist them to survive the trying times.

We handed out bracelets from The JOY Project and books that were sponsored by the CLF (Christian Literature Fund). We blessed them with muffins and scones for their teatime and some of our products such as rice, pasta and Yummy maize.

A huge thank you to Communities of Abundance for the message and Pastor Leon for the prayer and singing. What a humble and very special outreach this was!
