Thank You “Vlytige Hande”
Posted by LFCT
Once again our wonderful ladies from Klaradyn Retirement Village in Brackenfell, who tirelessly work together in a group called “Vlytige Hande” which loosely translates as “Diligent Hands” or “Industrious Hands” spent their time knitting and crocheting for various schools and organisations in the Brackenfell area.
Although the Little Fighters Cancer Trust is not situated in the area, we do work with Little Fighters and their Families at Tygerberg Hospital, so are also always included in the beneficiaries.
On Friday I spent a lovely time with all the ladies over a cup of coffee and scones, having a few good laughs, listening to all their stories and meeting some of the representatives from other organisations also there to collect goodies.
Just LOOK at all the wonderful goodies we received for our Families for our “Share the Warmth” outreach!!!
There are bright coloured booties, caps, jerseys, soft, warm blankies and some beautiful little sets consisting of jerseys and caps… the attention to detail and the craftmanship is really beautiful ❤
All the goodies that you can see in the photos taken in the garage of Mrs de Klerk’s home are just a fraction of what there actually was… all awaiting pick-up by organisations that work with underprivileged, ill or challenged children.
Ladies, from Team LFCT and from all our Little Fighters and their Families we say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for all your hard work and for all the lovely little outfits, booties, caps, jerseys and blankets that you donated.

About LFCTCHILDHOOD CANCER and CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS Little Fighters Cancer Trust is a non-profit Childhood Cancer support organisation that offers support and aid to Children with Cancer and their families. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family. One of the parents, usually the mother, must give up their job to care for the child and this creates financial problems for the family. In South Africa especially the majority of these families are not well-to-do; many of them are rural. A diagnosis of cancer can wipe out any family’s finances, let alone a poor family. The costs of special medications, special diets, hospital stays, transport to and from the hospital or clinic and accommodation and food costs for the mother who spends most of the time at her child’s bedside are astronomical. These are the people and problems that fall through the cracks, and these are the people that Little Fighters Cancer Trust has pledged to help in any way possible. LFCT takes a holistic approach to assisting the Children with Cancer and their Families, with the main aim to be the preservation of individual dignity and pride. Little Fighters Cancer Trust also focuses on promotion and advocacy of National Childhood Cancer Awareness in an effort to increase awareness of Early Warning Signs of Childhood Cancer. This would result in earlier diagnosis, giving the Child with Cancer more of a chance at Treatment and Survival. See "About" for more Background info
