Some of the Westlake children attended a performance of Disney on Ice in Cape Town on Friday and thoroughly enjoyed the outing.
Pippa Shaper from Home from Home Wynberg received an email from a supporter of Home from Home late on Thursday offering tickets to any of their children and foster moms to attend the show at 2pm on Friday. Pippa said “This gave us less than 48 hours to try and rally the troops with our committees and volunteers to be able to make this a possibility for as many of our children as possible. Given the short lead time, the fact that it was mid-holidays and so many people were away, we were thrilled that Home from Home was able to send a contingent of over 100 people to see the show! The moms and children we’ve talked to all report having had an amazing time, and they’re still talking about it this week. We are so grateful for everyone involved who made this a possibility for the children to have this wonderful experience.”
