Butterfly House Opening, Paarl November 2008

On Sunday 2 November 2008 we gathered in Fairyland, a township outside Paarl, to celebrate the opening of Butterfly House which will serve as a day care facility for children affected and infected by HIV and AIDS. Ivar Koteng, donor from Trondheim, Norway did the unveiling of the cornerstone. It was lovely to have my colleague from the Family Counseling office in Trondheim, Oslashyvind Standvick and his wife Anne Marie, present at this happy event to witness first hand the realization of a dream that they have shared with Drakenstein Hospice since their visit in 2005. My participation as Board Member of this project from 2006-2008 has proven to me what can be achieved when people from a diversity of communities work together towards a common goal.
