August Women's Month - Recognising Remarkable Ruth

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving” – Mother Theresa

Nestled in a valley, at the foot of the northern rise of the Drakensberg range lies a town, considered by some as small and relatively insignificant in the greater landscape of South Africa but which is home to some of the warmest, most compassionate, awe-inspiring women who have, in their daily lives moved mountains for many struggling souls.  
One such woman, who probably would prefer to remain in the safety of anonymity, is so inspirational in her genuine care for those less fortunate, she has become an essential part of the Newcastle community and in a sense, a household name. Ruth’s gnawing need to shelter the “street  children” that camped outside a well-known take-away spot many years ago, led to the realization of a children’s home in Kilbarchan called Thembelihle where now some 40 children reside. She is very quick to point out how many people played a pivotal, vital role in the home’s development – a testimony, she says, to the generosity of Newcastle businesses and residents. There are now a number of individual people, community organisations, businesses and churches that assist every now and again to make the group’s life a little more bearable by supplying meals, blankets, mattresses and clothing.
Always eager and appreciative of business involvement, Ruth offered to accompany the Pam Golding team to the bridge on Friday (5 August) to deliver 20 large portions of hearty, chicken stew to the men. Ingredients for this hot stew, followed by pudding, was donated by each Pam Golding staff member and cooked by the team members themselves as part of their on-going “Giving Back” program. The team also donated beenies, scarves, socks and jackets.  One of Pam Golding Properties’ business partners, Junit Manufacturing, based in Utrecht, also assisted by donating jackets and trousers. Heartfelt appreciation was evident in the smiles from the men as their meal was served to them and they received their small parcel of clothing. 
Ruth’s rewards are seldom and are not monetary based....she finds her joy and peace when a life has changed for the better....when a once homeless child eventually passes matric, when an old man, too afraid to go home because he has no work, is embraced by his family once again or when a runaway child and parent are eventually reunited. 
Pam Golding would like to thank this remarkable woman who gives warmth, compassion and hope to so many who have lost everything.
