Ouma Majola, director of the Little Rose Children's Home in Kliptown, Soweto, was surprised when Mama Angel visited her last week.

Mama Angel visited the children's home to hand over toys, books and R2700 for repairs to the roof.

This was Mama Angel's second visit to the home.

On her first visit, she also handed over toys and books for the children.

Majola has been running the home for 14 years.

The project started as a vegetable garden and was upgraded to a creche after six months.

The home now caters for more than 200 orphans and vulnerable children.

Helen Masumpa, child minder at the home, said "Some of the children don't stay at the home, but just come there to get two meals a day."

The home also caters for abused women.

"Though the home is for children, we can't just turn away the women.

"If the women have nowhere to go, then we take them in, " said Majola .

Majola said: "It's important for me as a Muslim to help my community."

The home has 10 permanent employees and 23 volunteers.

Nurturing Orphans of Aids for Humanity (Noah), also helps the home by donating food.

"Mama Angel is special. She is very helpful," a grateful Majola said.

Majola took advantage of the event to make an appeal to the community to play a more direct and active role in the project.

"If people in the community help us, we would appreciate it, and be able to do so much more, " she said.
