An Easter egg hunt and a gift of additional chocolate goodies made Easter extra special for the residents of Rand Aid’s Thembalami Care Centre, which incorporates the Max Ordman Deaf Association (MODA).
On March 30, occupational therapy technician Neo Sefuthi hid marshmallow eggs in the garden, transporting residents to their childhoods and adding some magic to the day.
Two days later, on April 1, 120 red and white bags filled with Easter eggs – which were donated by a good Samaritan – were handed out by Thembalami deputy manager Elize Raath to all residents.
“They loved the gesture,” says Elize.
