Doreen's our Pimville queen

The ACFS feeding centre in Pimville is ably run by Doreen Boshielo, who grew up in Pimville herself. Doreen has a natural way with children and they make a beeline for her hugs after school.

“I find it comes naturally to give them the motherly loves and hugs that they maybe don’t get at home," says Doreen.  "I feel comfortable with children. It’s just within me.”

Doreen sees some terrible things in the course of her work, especially in the squatter camps.

“Some things are horrifying. Through God’s grace I don’t take the sadness home with me. It is fulfiling to work at ACFS,” she adds.

Thank you Doreen, for the love you give our young beneficiaries.
