Children in the Townships have benefitted enormously from generous donations by Tourists and we are extremely grateful to these compassionate people. The first brick building in New Rest, Guguletu was the Creche, with the first flushing toilets in New Rest! Many township children would never have seen the sea, visited Kirstenbosch, the Aquarium or enjoyed a Christmas party, if it wasn't for tourists. The children in a creche in Langa would still have nothing to stimulate them, if playground equipment wasn't donated, as well as educational toys and books. These children had nothing, until toursts came to their rescue. Donations have also been used to buy food for these children. The football team in New Rest was visited by a team from the UK, who brought them new footballs, jerseys, shorts and socks. Children have been sponsored and been given gifts of clothing by tourists.
