Connect123 - Friends Day Centre Showcase



Even though it was a cold and chilly morning, nothing could dampen the spirits of the 10 Ohio University Students from Connect 123 who were visiting Friends Day Centre. Dalene, the Centre's fundraiser and administrator gave an in-depth talk about the history of the Centre as well as the children at the facility.

At present the Centre cares for 103 children with various physical and intellectual disabilities. They have amazing therapists on site and proudly boast a water therapy facility as well! During their day of service, the students were divided into pairs and spent the morning engaging and interacting with the children in their classrooms.

Thank you to Truworths, The Body Shop and National Lottery Commision for making this day possible!
