Impact Radio's Gift

About a month ago, Erika was invited to go on Impact Radio, a Christian radio station here in Pretoria that is broadcast from Hatfield Church. It was during the morning segment, and two other community service organizations like ours were invited, too.

Erika was the last of the three to go on the air. We went into the studio, and the DJ asked her what her organization does. Then he asked what their current needs are, among which Erika listed a vehicle for the centre and also used computers.

After that, the DJ made a special announcement. He said that Impact Radio was going to donate R20,000 to BEAM! What a blessing. We were so grateful to Impact for their generosity. We’ve been able to use the money to set up a new sports and life skills programme for the children of the Nellmapius community in which they learn things like hygiene and agricultural skills.

We have been trying so hard to find an area where our children can play. Just after we received the donation, we also managed to get permission from the caretakers of the sports field opposite the road to play there every afternoon
