Love and Ice Cream
We threw a party for the children of Ekurhuleni Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Acornhoek, South Africa. It was the first time that they tasted ice cream! What a lovely, memorable day for us and the children! Because Acornhoek is one of the world’s poverty nodes where about 1 in 3 people is HIV+, there are many AIDS orphans there. Our friends who were visiting from Brazil wanted the children of Ekurhuleni to have a day of just playtime and loving–and ice cream–because of the hardships these children face on a daily basis. In the end we weren’t sure who had more fun–us or the children!
