Care Village Outreach, Service/Mission Trip Middelburg, South Africa

July 30th-Aug 14th, 2022 SIGN UP BY April 30th!

WHERE ARE WE GOING? Care Village is an orphanage in the first-world city of Middelburg, Mpumalanga, South Africa. We will be staying in dorm-style housing on their campus. There are currently only 16 beds available at the Care Village for the team. There will likely be an option for people to stay with host families in Middelburg if the number exceeds 16.

WHAT WILL WE BE DOING? Giving care & support to the children, helping with homework, participating in activities, sports, board games, card games and computer/technical training. There will also be a building project as we are planning to renovate the current hall and dining hall areas, including a chapel for worship. There will be plenty of work to do, whether you prefer spending time with the children or getting your hands dirty with the building project.
There will be an option for a sightseeing trip to see some of the South African sights for three days for an additional fee, around $350.

WHO MAY GO? People who want to be a part of something bigger. People who want to grow their faith. People in good physical health (who can walk up to 1⁄2 a mile at a time and use stairs). People who want to make a difference in the life of a child. Bring a friend!

WHO IS LEADING? Bob Cindric and Lee Willwerth will be leading the team. Bob is a retired Saline Schools teacher, former Music DIrector at FIrst Presbyterian Church and the President of Care Village Outreach. Lee is President and Owner of DreamMaker Bath and Kitchen and the Vice President of Care Village Outreach.

HOW MUCH? $500 deposit (covers room, board, and side trip) + Trip Insurance + Airfare (approximately $2,700, which will be paid directly to Delta Airlines). The total trip cost is estimated to be approximately $3,300 per person, which includes the above-mentioned costs.

TO EXPRESS YOUR INTEREST reach out to Bob Cindric, cindric.bob@gmail.com, or Lee Willwerth, lwillwerth@dm-remodel.com – first come, first served for beds on site at Care Village.

INFORMATIONAL MEETING: These meetings will provide all of the information you will need to know for the trip. Please plan on attending one: Saturday, May 14th at 10a.m. or Thursday, May 19th at 7p.m. Location: 2420 S. Industrial, Ann Arbor. (DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen Operations Center).

Container Success

Container #2 arrived on January 11th with few casualties. Lounge furniture, in particular, was gratefully received by the children. Between the two containers, each house received all new lounge furniture and there was even some left over to outfit some of the staff flats. Thank you to all who donated!Container #2 arrived on January 11th with few casualties. Lounge furniture, in particular, was gratefully received by the children.
