Arms of Mercy has become one of my greatest honours and responsibilities. I am Zoalize Van Rensburg; founder and president of my own non profit known as “Never Too Young To Advocate” which is a youth development program. My heart has always and will forever be with the people, especially children, therefore I am making it my aim to fulfill my duties as an Arms of Mercy ambassador and spokesperson to the best of my abilities. As an advocate, I feel that I have been lead by my duty to serve, and do everything in my power to ensure that we take the correct concrete steps in order to have hope for a brighter future. I believe that by making yourself heard, and listened to, is step one to success.

I am Mieke v Schalkwyk, an energetic 11 year old who enjoys playing with my animals, riding my bike, and mostly being outdoors. I am quite curious and inventive and have recently discovered how to make my own natural, healthy slime out of Aloe Vera. When I am not on stage, modelling & dancing, you can find me on horseback. My parents call me a little Master Chef when I cook up a storm in the kitchen. I don’t like seeing people suffer or hurt and will always comfort or go the extra mile to see how I can make a change in people’s lives, even if it is just by giving someone a hug or telling them how special they are. I have won many, many titles since I started modelling at the age of 2, but my proudest achievement to date has been the 2021 Overall Junior winner title, for Miss Arms of Mercy. For me it wasn’t just any title, but it was a title that really made a difference, a title that could tell a million stories, a title that had a voice, a title that really cared. Since then it was and has been a privilege as a Junior Ambassador, to advocate for the sick children from Arms of Mercy and I would do my utmost best to continue to work hard and make a difference one bracelet, fundraiser & awareness at a time.

I am Michaela Blignaut. I would like to call myself an all-rounder, meaning I love playing sports such as tennis and netball, I am a top 10 academics Vita learner, an Ambassador for Fourthroc, Glam-O-Cracy Vanderbijlpark, MZest and recently for Arms of Mercy NPC. I have featured in international magazines such as PPMC Magazine South Africa and Brand Model Magazine. I am also taking on the challenge of pageantry. I dream of lighting the fire and desire in my community for more kind souls to stand up and take hands to unite as one. My vision is to inspire and assist the determined souls, compassionate and willing youth of today. To be the voice for the voiceless.

I’m Anice Kruger, also known as Pippie`s Mum. At 39 years old, I reside in Stilbaai, Western Cape. Being a special needs mom for over 12 years, I’ve experienced incredible support since my child’s accident. Now, my desire is to extend that support to other parents facing similar challenges. While it takes a village to raise a child, it takes the world to raise a special needs hero. I once felt like I had to navigate this journey alone, but with Arms of Mercy by my side, the world doesn’t seem as daunting. Making a difference is a rare opportunity, yet with Karin and her amazing team, I believe we can positively impact the lives of many children.
