Jessica Kalil, a grade 7 learner at St Henry’s Marist College, was quickly won over when family friend, Erin Moyle, a grade 10 learner at Crawford La Lucia, told her of how she was inspired by the time she spent at The Domino Foundation’s Babies’ Homes in Durban North.
For Moyle, it all started with a school Life Orientation project involving community service. She chose to spend time with babies and toddlers at The Domino Foundation’s Babies’ Homes. The time spent at the home was enough for Moyle to realise that she wanted to do more for the cause.
It was not long before her enthusiasm spread to her family, friends, classmates and church community. Soon Moyle started sending out messages on Whatsapp to spread the word in an appeal to raise funds to support the work of the home.
A generous Kalil elected to give all of her birthday cash to Moyle’s drive. Between the two determined girls, they managed to raise over R4500 which will go towards
the homes programmes.
The programme’s provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for abandoned babies and toddlers before being adopted into a loving family unit.
Rowan Phillips, Volunteer Manager at The Domino Foundation,said,”The girls’ enthusiasm to make a difference and their selflessness is a real inspiration.”
He invited the public to become involved in the Domino Effect, to change an individual, change a community and change a nation.
