#besembekkie met his older brother Stiaan today. It is Stiaan’s 21st birthday. Stiaan was not in the best of moods so taking a good picture of them together was not easy at all – we failed with that part of the project! Maybe next time. Stiaan lives in a home for disabled, Casa Caritas, in Kempton Park and comes home every second or third weekend. He suffers from a syndrome called Cri-du-Chat and is mentally and physically disabled.
This was #besembekkie ‘s first road trip and he loved meeting all the residents at
Casa Caritas and the most amazing staff taking care of all these disabled persons.
There is absolutely no doubt in our minds that letting Stiaan live in a loving home for disabled persons like Casa Caritas was a good decision for all members of our family. He has been in Casa Caritas for more than half of his life now, and you can read a little more about our family’s life at http://besembek1.blogspot.com/2014/04/we-are-all-caught-up-in-our-own-worlds.html
With Casa Caritas so close to our hearts, we will always ask for help when and where they need it most. #besembekkie appeals to assistance with the following: Besides the most obvious items for eaxample food, they really are in a need of having some of their walls painted – so if you can donate foods like vegetables (or almost anything that can feed 45 persons) or paint (and even some time to help paint) please contact Adri on 011-976-3457 or 011-976-3417.
