Good Morning Angels Follow-up: More Youth Day surprises for Garaletsang Home

BACKGROUND:  The home was started by an elderly couple as a community day care, but it soon became a permanent home to 24 abandoned, abused or orphaned children, with more children finding a temporary shelter there, as a place of safety. DJ Lamiez and her husband, Khuli Chana adopted the home a year ago – to assist with funding and fundraising as they do not receive state funding. Living conditions at the home are very basic with the children sharing the available beds, and some sleeping on the floor. Lamiez had plans drawn up to have a proper home built (pending permissions from the City Council), which she will fund. In the meantime, the children have been moved to a Cricket Hall in Atteridgeville, where living conditions are much improved.

The Angels at Lotters Pine donated 20 bunk beds and 40 mattresses for the children of Garaletsang Home - and this morning these beds will be delivered! Good Morning Angels assisted with R35 000 from the Good Morning Angels Fund for day-to-day necessities for the children - and more angels have come on board with surprises for the children, their guardians and their patron, DJ Lamiez!
