I love serving alongside my sister-in-law Jackie knowing that, in some small way, we are helping these beautiful children at Ya Bana Village. It’s been amazing to see how God has worked over this time and to be part of this mission.

The other volunteers are some of the most wonderful people I have ever met; and we care so much about each other and the children who benefit from our work. It’s truly a miracle what Mabopane Foundation has accomplished since 1998 when Becky visited South Africa for the first time and the first donations were received on behalf of the children. And I am proud to be a small part of it.
