We hosted a Valentines Outreach to Sunfield Home recently, and we are forever changed by this experience. The love, the joy that this morning brought to us cannot be explained in words.

It was the most amazing morning, and we were welcomed like family. We laughed, we danced and we chatted. Thank you to all the volunteers that came out and helped us host this pamper morning. To each and every donation that made this morning possible - be it money or pamper products - from the bottom of our hearts - thank you.

Thank you to Kobus and Erika Stroebel for your very kind donation of the "boerewors" for lunch - we appreciate you.

Sunfield Home Wellington is situated in Wellington and is a protective workshop and residential centre for intellectually disabled adults who are unable to function without guidance and protection.

This diminished intellectual ability can be: • congenital, • genetic, • caused by injury at birth, • motor vehicle accident, • sickness, or • environmental deficiencies. Examples include Down Syndrome, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome and oxygen deprivation at birth.

They are a registered non-profit company. Their income consists of monthly fees paid by parents and a government subsidy. The annual deficit is covered via contract work, countless fundraising campaigns and sympathetic and caring donors.

Sunfield Home Wellington's residential facilities provide 24hour support for permanent residents, as well as offering Day Care programmes for persons with intellectual disabilities. Their objective is to create a family environment where residents and staff can interact with one another in a homely atmosphere and build friendships while participating in the activities provided.

Residents are also encouraged to develop a realistic level of independence based on their individual capabilities and participate as much as possible in normal everyday activities. Most residents attend workshops during the day or participate in either paid or voluntary work. At Sunfield Home they have an 'open door' policy that encourages family and friends to visit at any time and participate in any of their activities. With large living spaces, outdoor patio areas and spacious gardens, there is plenty of space for residents who may want to spend time on their own. Staff members are trained to cope with any special needs or health problems and are encouraged to work in a supportive role, which also empowers our residents.

"Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows" Helen Keller.
