Meet our three Eersterus angels
They have been dubbed the angels of Eersterust, a sprawling township of some 400 000 people at the gateway to Tshwane’s industrial areas of Silverton and Waltloo.
The three women, all RAM employees, call themselves the “Let’s do This” team. Every Sunday after church, they distribute clothing they have collected and provide home-cooked food they have paid for and prepared themselves to orphans and other children in need.
They were motivated to get involved by the poverty they saw all around them.
“It is important for us to help where we can, even though we are such as small organisation,” said Livian.
“For us, the comments from people and the expressions on their faces, especially the kids, are priceless,” Shanice added.
