One of the initiatives of the newly founded Mother and Child Academic Hospital Foundation (Macah) is the beautification of the children’s wards at the Pelonomi Hospital in Bloemfontein.

Two women, Petro Lombard and artist Theodora Grivas, as well as other artists, undertook this programme to paint colourful pictures in the children’s and paediatrics wards.

Petro uses themes from her book Speaking Life to encou­rage positive words.

This heart-warming programme started last year and gradually has attracted interes­t and support.

The programme also saw the finalists of the Miss Free State and Miss Teen Free State pageant painting encouraging words and colourful pictures on the walls of the children’s and paediatrics wards.

The models volunteered their time to contribute towards the initiative on 3 March – much to the delight of the children and staff at Pelonomi, who loved the colourful pictures.
