This was the very first guest who arrived at JABULANI GUEST HOUSE in August 1995, as recorded in my guestbook.
After 22 years and very many wonderful guests, I have come to the end of the road. I am sad to announce that at the end of August 2017 JABULANI GUEST HOUSE will close its doors. The property has been sold and will be redeveloped as a care facility. I am very happy that this grand old dame of a house will be getting a new life as yet another place of caring.
After twenty-two years as the chief carer, where I received as much and even more than I gave from wonderful guests, it is now time for me to also start taking better care of myself. At present I do not even have alternative accommodation yet, but it will all happen in good time.
Eunice, my wonderful helper and assistant, will also use this opportunity, after supporting herself from age 14, to enjoy her life and grandchildren. You have earned this time for yourself, Eunice, and I know that you will make a difference to people around you wherever you go. Go with peace!
If anyone of my old guests would like to keep in contact, please inbox me and I will gladly share my contact information. I will continue to pray for all my "grandchildren" in Europe and the Scandinavian countries, and hope to see and hear from you either directly or through my Helena Koch fb page.
So thank you to all the lovely loyal guests that have graced us with your presence, it has been our pleasure to be of service to you. We leave here with many happy memories and much joy.
2nd August 2017.
