“The orphans and vulnerable children have been greatly impacted. These ‘rejects' of society feel so important and worthy to have had a group of important overseas visitors just give them the time of day. Just merely being spoken to makes them feel wanted and important. The hugs and having their photos taken made them feel like movie stars. You have made a great difference by just treating them as worthwhile human beings.”

These words are contained in a letter of appreciation written by the principal of the Dunamis Christian School in Welkom, South Africa after Charmaine Wheatley, who was born in South Africa, visited with a team of Australian volunteers recently.

Some two years after arriving in Australia, and at the age of just 12, Marc Polmans is making his mark on the tennis court. He was the number one in his age group when he left South Africa, and is currently tennis's number one ranked 12 year old in Australia.

Marc started to play tennis at the age of four when his family lived in Amazimtoti, South Africa. Says his father Gavin: “Marc's mother Nicola and I both come from a sporting background and I noticed that from a very young age he had very good hand/eye co-ordination. He very seldom missed kicking or catching a ball. We decided to try tennis at the local club.”

After adopting the Australian Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, we were impressed by how she would push lettuce leaves through the bars of her cage, offering food to wild cockatoos that would visit her.

Moving from Roodepoort, Johannesburg to Sydney five years ago when I was 14, I had my head in the clouds with the dream of becoming a pilot. When I heard about the Australian Air League, I thought that getting involved might be an opportunity to help me achieve my dreams.
