Farewell to Brie

One of our volunteers, Brie Plaggenborg, recently left I Care to return home to Holland. She has been with us for more than two years and has been a great asset to the organisation in more ways than one. During her stay with us she spent her time with the children. She was with them during their rehabiliation, in our special school, helping our principal, Gill, and after school assisting with homework and helping the house-parents. She also accompanied them on various outings to places of interest such as bird parks, the Durban Museum and Art Gallery, the Sharks Board and Tala Game Reserve. Then there were the other activities like swimming, surfing ten-pin-bowling and other sporting events, Brie was there too, joininig in the fun.
Before she left she wrote the following: -
"My two years in South Africa and with I Care have been wonderful and life-enriching, very loving, challenging in many ways and occasionally frustrating but very, very fulfilling."
She also added, "I Care has changed as an organisation during my time here. It is much more professional these days and is succeeding in working more efficiently towards achieving the vision of its founders, Graham and Denise Cochrane, that is to get every child off the streets and into a loving home."
Goodbye, Brie, you will be missed by your I Care colleagues and all your boys but we know you will be happy to be re-united with your family back home in the Netherlands.
