The Irish Are Back!

 

The first 200 (of a total group of 700) Irish volunteers arrived in Cape Town last week and started building more homes for the residents of Imizamo Yethu on Saturday 29th October 2005. More than 300 hundred homes have already been built during previous visits.

The changes that have already taken place in only three days are staggering. Residents of Imizamo Yethu and Hout Bay are literally seeing the transformation of a township before their own eyes. An informal settlement is transformed in a formal residential area which everyone can be proud of. The energy and enthusiasm with which these Irish volunteers (men and women) are performing this gigantic task can not be described in words.

The Hout Bay Christian Community Association welcomes each and every volunteer and would like to thank them for their unselfish sacrifice of time and money to make a difference in the lives of the people of Imizamo Yethu!
