Over the past few months we have been working with a Dutch foundation, "Be One World"
They donated 2000kgs of 2nd hand clothing at a value of about R250 000. During this past week myself and some of the forum members, viz. Jan Putte, Fluffy, Pierre, Slick, Rob Goldblatt distributed the clothing in the remote villages in the Mokhotlong district. We clothed approx. 2500 people! It was an awesome trip! Watch this space for photos!

It was an awesome experience to be with you all. Thank you.
To be in fresh air, good food, good company, and helping a little, was so uplifting to me.
Under the wip of modern society again, so I am a bit pressed for time. I will take the effort to do a nice trip report ASAP.
In the interrum just a little photo of the convoy from my phone. Only camera I had with me.
Nice pictures , congrats on a job well done .
WELL DONE GENTS. WELL DONE.
Those looks of appreciation on the kids' faces surely made it even more worthwhile.
The Be One World video is now on You Tube. It is in 4 short parts.
To all of you well done.Great story with great positive ending.
I've just had a mail from Barbara of BeOneWorld.
She wants to do another clothing and blanket drop this February!
Give me a shout if you're keen to be involved. I'm not sure of dates yet.
This is just really early days!
Please keep me udated on this one.
Just a question, and I guess I will now get flack to daring to ask this.
Why Lesotho? Does charity not start at home. What about the remote villages in the Transkei in the Eastern Cape. The Eastern Cape has the highest level of unemployment in the country. Should we not first look after our own?

Mabey the drop in Feb can be done in EC?
The lady who is donating the clothes is from Holland. When she looks at Southern Africa, Lesotho is one of the poorest. So she wants the clothes to go there. Remember she is an outsider.
So she doesn't see Transkei but SA as a whole and Lesotho as a whole.
I would love to do a Transkei trip as well one day. I can even chat to her about it.
Depending on the date in feb id like to help out Dave Robb
Depending on the dates, myself and my son, two landies, would love to be involved again.
