Greetings to all. I would love to thank you for the privilege and for all the things you have done for both me and my baby. There is no place where anyone could do what you did for me and I really appreciate your love and kindness. I never thought I would be the person I am today; you have taught me so many new things, I have met so many people here at Hands of Compassion and now I am ready to face anything that is going to happen out there in the outside world. I hope God protects you and your families. I love you so much! God bless you!  Nomkhitha

Hello sis Pretty (New Mothers Project Leader)… how are you doing?  We are doing very well.  My studies are hectic but I’m hanging in there; the first term was great.  I just wanna thank you for everything that you have done for me and Reign; you have been like a sister to me all through the time I’ve been at HOC.  Thank you for that; you have done more than your job description.  I have to admit that life outside Hands of Compassion is hard but if a person has faith in the Lord and in oneself, there is no doubt that a person will make it.  I miss HOC; it is a great place.  I will never forget my experiences there.  How is Church?  I miss it a lot.  Thank you for every step you have taken with me.  Greet everyone including Wonder. Love always: Basheera and Reign.

Dear Pretty, I’m hereby expressing my appreciation for everything HOC did to me. But HOC is not it without leaders. Thank you very much of being used to help people like me and even those who are in need. All the effort, encouraging words, advice and even your experience of life that you went through, it really made me and brought me to be a real woman of today. I mean this from the bottom of my heart; I am changed and nothing shall move me anymore. You contributed a lot. God bless you abundantly . From Memory Moyo

To my parents of HOC. When I first arrived at HOC it wasn’t what I expected, as I always thought it was just another place of safety. Yet I was never more wrong about anything in my life. And that was a life time worth of lessons that I learnt for that I ‘m so grateful – thank you from the bottom of my heart. May God bless your hearts with its desires. Thanks again from Sabela and Lathitha.

Pretty Khowane, I would like to thank you for everything you have done for me, because if it wasn’t by you parental love and support, I  wouldn’t  be a strong and confident person I am today. May God bless you and your whole family and protect you all the way. I really don’t have many words to say but know that you are very special and you must believe you are the gift God brought to me and for a very good reason. Even through tough times you were always there and even in my weaknesses you never  turned your back against me, instead you gave support ,love and taught me right from wrong. What I promise you  is that I will be the very good mother to Chika as you have been a good mother  to me. Take care of yourself – Lebohang and Chika
