pridex kitchens and the community

At Pridex Kitchens we feel closely connected to the world around us and to the Wellington community in particular. We love to give our support where and when we can.

This lovely young boy is called Yankho. He is 6 years old and lives in Onga, Malawi. His favourite hobby is playing with toys and he has 2 brothers and 2 sisters.

 

 

 

Malawi, a small, landlocked country in central Africa, faces many challenges. Drought and environmental degradation, HIV and AIDS, and a growing population means that families are struggling to provide their children with nutritious food, quality educatiion and essential medicines.

Recently, El Nino weather patterns have been affecting regions of Malawi. Floods followed by severe drought are having a destructive impact on agriculture. This is devastating in a country where over 80 per cent of the population are small-hold farmers

With our monthly sponsorship through World Vision, we can give Yankho hope, just like we did for Kapembwa in Mporokoso, Zambia

 

 

2015 Special Children’s Christmas Party

 

Reading this "thank you" letter made me very happy! With our youngest daughter I helped handing out the teddy bears and other toys to the children. A wonderful experience. When I was on my way out, one of the children pulled at my sleeve to show me all his treasures, and we had a marvellous discussion about what name his bear should have!

"Dear Margriet,

Thank you so much for your very generous support of the 2015 Special Children’s Christmas Party which was held at Te Rauparaha Arena on Saturday 28th November. Please scroll down below to see a photographic report of the event.

The day, gave up to 1800 children with life threatening illnesses, intellectual or physical disabilities, or those living in disadvantaged circumstances, a day they will never forget. The invitees were sourced through local schools and various government, community and charitable organisations that are involved with these children and their families on a daily basis.

It was a fun day for the children and their families. They received drinks, lollies, chippies, ice creams, energy bars, hamburgers, sandwiches, fruit juice, and fruit to keep the energy levels high. The arena was decked out like a mini Disneyland with jumping castles, face painting, and many more other characters, guests and activities to provide plenty of fun and entertainment! There was also an on going stage show with heaps of entertainment and celebrities hosted by the VERY popular Stephen McIvor and Jason Fa’afoi from SKY TV.

The highlight of the day was when Santa arrived to greet the excited 4000 plus crowd. It was then off to the Santa’s HUGE toy cave filled with thousands of top quality gifts. Here, every child received a soft toy and 2 or 3 very high quality gifts to call their own. These gifts were purchased with the very generous support from all the wonderful businesses that sponsored this event.

Without the generous support of the business community from the region (and around New Zealand), the team from the SKY Television and Te Rauparaha Arena and all the helpers and volunteer groups who assisted on the day, this event simply would not have been possible. On behalf of all the children and families that attended the day, thank you, thank you, thank you!
