Capetonians unite to help place two neglected little girls in school

The plight of two young girls taken in by the Peace Home in Sunningdale has touched the hearts of many Capetonians who rallied and pledged to help ensure these girls are placed in schools.

Sarah (3) arrived at Peace Home at 18-months-old. She was abandoned, with no name, no age and background.

Peace Home staff worked hard to help her adjust and smile again. The staff describes her as a humble and happy young girl who has the most beautiful smile that good potentially see her become a top model some day.

Lilly (5) on the other hand, arrived at Peace Home at the age of two-and-a-half-years old, weighing just 6kg. She was severely malnourished. According to Peace Home, Lilly is now a friendly, loving and smart little girl who has a lot to offer the world.

Val Tomlinson, the principal at Bloubergrant Pre-Primary School wanted to accommodate these little girls at her school in 2018 and was looking for funds to be able to assist them.

A plea was sent out on Cape Talk and listeners heeded the call

The response we got from the listeners is completely heart-warming. The staff are walking on cloud nine. Sarah received four sponsorships for three years and Lilly received full sponsorship for 2018...

Val Tomlinson, Bloubergrant Pre-Primary School principal

She says both girls have sponsorship for the extra-mural activities of their choice and have indicated that they both keen to take ballet.

The sponsors kept on coming and I would say we are covered ... they still say we would like to sponsor...

Val Tomlinson, Bloubergrant Pre-Primary School principal

So Val plans to use the additional funds to open a bursary fund to help needy kids in the future.

Listen to the full heart-warming story,:

On Thursday morning Val called in to the Kieno Kammies Show and described the two little girls in need of help.

Since the call, CapeTalkers rose to the occasion and the little girls will be able to study at Bloubergrant Pre-Primary School next year:
