LCA support “Koningskinders”. These towels were handed out to the children. In these families where finances are a problem, towels are in great demand, especially when the children go on camps. Sixty of these beautiful towels were donated by Bundu Archery, and handed out to the children of “Koningskinders” Vanderbijlpark.

It took me by surprise when speaking to these boys, how much they were the same as my two boys. Just looking at them did not give away anything. I came to the realization that working with these boys, or children for that matter, are going to involve some emotion, mostly me crying. It was difficult for me to comprehend the circumstances in which some of these boys live. Yet, irrespective of this, they were just boys.
Thanks to a friend, we were blessed with a huge donation from Busby, ranging from high end dresses and leather bags to jewelry and shoes. Most of these had only minor damages and could be repaired with little effort.Some of the dresses were of such quality that we decided to give it to a local church who in turn help matric girls, whom otherwise would not be able to afford dresses for the matric farewell function, with an outfit. The rest of the clothing was donated to schools an orphanage as far as Mozambique.

The children we are involved with do not have much, but what they do have is time. I wanted to get them into a situation where they could do something for others, instead of just receiving. The idea was that they clean the kennels and wash the dogs at the local SPCA, but due to their ages, the SPCA did not want to take the risk. They did however propose that they would like to do an educational program with the kids.
Thanks to the money that was made with the Winter market, it was possible forus to use some of that to take some inner city kids to a farm near Koppies in the Free State. With the main focus being to introduce them to the outdoors with activities like fihsing and archery.
Fakkel is a school in Sasolburg for learners with moderate intellectual disabilities. Together with the limited intellectual ability of the learners, many also have multiple special needs. Ninety percent (90%) of the learners do not have medical aids and approximately thirty-two percent (32%) do not pay school fees. Sixty percent (60%) of the learners in Fakkel School is black and forty percent (40%) is Caucasian. Thirty percent (30%) of learners (110 children) in Fakkel School receive food at school on a daily basis during breaks and often that is the learner's only food for the day. Sometimes, on weekends and holidays, they send food parcels home. They also have a clothing bank at the school and try where possible to help the neediest learners in school with clothing and something warm like a sweater or pair of shoes, a luxury which they cannot afford.

Having to feed a child on R2,50/day is not much. Feeding 400 children each day quickly adds up. LCA offered to help Weiveld School by donating R10 000 towards their feeding scheme at school, but a quick calculation showed that it will only be enough money to feed the kids for 10 days… I was shocked to realize that the money we were allocating to Weiveld would not alleviate much of the challenges experience by the school regarding their feeding scheme, and decided to look for something that would at least take the money we have, much further.
For some time I wanted to contribute to sponsoring a service dog for a child. A hunter from the USA made this possible when he donated money to LCA after his hunt with Thwane safaris in South Africa. The South African Guide-dogs Association for the Blind also train dogs to assist people with other disabilities other than blindness. With numerous commands the Service Dog becomes the physical extensions of their recipients by retrieving dropped items and turning on light switches, etc.
The Loerie Youth Centre is a children’s home, situated in Bronkhorstspruit and currently accommodates 35 underprivileged children, as well as 3 students (who grew up in Loerie) at the North West University (PUKS). The socio-economic situation in our country has led to the necessity for such a centre. The parents of these children can for various reasons, no longer provide a healthy and safe environment for them. The Children and students are fully dependent on the Loerie Trust for all their needs.

In South Africa it is common for schools to have a feeding scheme of some sort, but at Weiveld they had the need for a breakfast program as well. Since some of the children do not eat at home, and only get food at school, breakfast would have a big impact on their ability to focus in class. But the logistic for breakfast is more difficult than for lunch.
Psa 24:1 The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein … I can only talk for myself, and I do not represent any hunting organisation, this is my personal opinion. There is so much more to hunting than the kill. I take responsibility for killing that animal. Part of my responsibility is to make sure I have the right equipment, and practise enough to ensure that I kill the animal as clean and fast as possible.
Taffie Muller won this price, but could not do the hunt. Originally he would donate only the carcasses to LCA, but two week before the hunt none of his friend could do the fiscal hunt and they decided to allow me to do the hunt. After the hunt was completed, it was with gratitude in my hart that we drove back to the lodge, thankful for being able to partake in such a hunt.

I found Marikwa Game farm on the internet while looking for a weekend get-away for me and my wife. We made the booking with the idea that it would not include fishing or hunting. A week later I received an e-mail from the owner, Johan indicating that he would like to donate a Blue Wildebeest to LCA and I could hunt it while we were there. On a seperate occasion Johan Grobler from Marikwa arranged for me to join two of his friends on a hunt during 2013. Although Marikwa is a Bow hunting farm only, he identified 3 blesbok to be taken off. The meat would be processed into mince and sausage and donated to JAK127, a NGO in Orkney, North West Province of South Africa.
