THE Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre recently welcomed three volunteers from Germany who have come to spend time with the children at the Greytown Child and Youth Centre.

Excitement was written all over their faces when they were asked how they felt about being part of this incredible family.

Alina Bohm (19), who comes from Limburgrhof, lived in South Africa previously having spent a year at a boarding school in Port Elizabeth.

She said she has loved South Africa ever since and was thrilled to be back. After she completed high school she took a gap year spending time at Greytown Child and Youth Care Centre.

Anna Klaprath, from Nordhausen, is 20 and will be at the centre until February 2016. She said she has always loved working with children, which was one of the reasons why she came to South Africa. Even though she has only been here for a few weeks she has experienced and learnt a lot about the different cultures and loved the Heritage Day celebrations.

Antonio Reygers (18), from Buckerberg said she was happy to be here and, like her friends, was very appreciative of the warm and friendly welcome they had received.

The centre management extend their gratitude to the volunteers as they make a huge difference to the well-being of the children. - Ayanda Mabaso
