Gill Bohlmann who serves on both The Rotary Claremont Community Service and the Outreach Committee’s, recently co-ordinated a very pleasant weekend visit to The Rotary Strand’s Heartlands Baby Sanctuary project. Gill was joined by various Claremont Rotarians (Monique and her husband Rob, Brian, Mark and wife Ann, Jaap and wife Liz).
The successful visit to the Baby Sanctuary was hosted by The Strand Rotary Club President Peter Kaufmann, his wife and three other club members. A tour of the Child Care Centre for abused, abandoned and chronically ill children (birth -6 years) which is also a Paediatric Hospice, was conducted by the Centre’s dynamic CEO – Monica Buitendag.
The vehicle which Rotary Claremont’s District 9350 Outreach Programme had partially funded, was also viewed. The Claremont team also enjoyed a worthwhile mini shopping spree at the Heartlands Charity Shop. The fun filled interaction between the members & partners of the two District 9350 Rotary Club’s was most meaningful and provided an opportunity to share ideas and celebrated the ability to join hands in assisting the Community.
