Dear Learn and Teach I am a domestic worker. Please help me. I work long hours. I want a happy Christmas. I will have Christ­mas with the dishes. Happy Christmas to everybody. Maria Dikobe Germiston.

Thank you for your good wishes. Most domestic workers work long hours. The law does not help them. But domestic have some other rights. We wrote about domestic worker rights .in the magazine earlier this year. We will send you a copy of the magazine. -editor

Dear Learn and Teach I write for a newspaper m Cape Town. I saw your story on ‘factory worker rights’. Can we use your story for our newspaper? Kenneth de Bruin Elsies River.

You can use the story with pleasure. Anybody can use stories from the magazine. But please tell us before you use the story. -editor

Dear Learn and Teach Thank you for the magazine. I thought the story on mealie meal was very good. Mealie Meal companies who care about our health must add vitamins to mealie meal. The vitamins will help fight a sickness called pellagra. I want to tell the companies one thing. People need food to make them strong -not to fill their stomachs. I think we must stop buying mealie meal from companies that do not add vitamins. Then they will know that people do care about their health. Fakazi Duma Kwa-Mashu.

Dear Learn and Teach I really enjoy reading about Sloppy, Lizzie and Dumpy. But I worry about Sloppy. He always gets into trouble and he always has accidents. V. Khumalo Soweto.

Don’t worry. Sloppy is a tough guy. -editor

Dear Learn and Teach Your story about Lady Africa was very sad. I think Lady Africa is a brave and wonderful person. Please give us more stories about such people. L. Maluleka Johannesburg.

Dear Learn and Teach I read your magazine every night. When my English is good enough, I want to study standard five. I will study standard five at a corres­pondence college. Jonas Kgole Mahwelereng.

Thank you for the letter Jonas. We hope you do well. –editor

Dear Learn and Teach I live in Namibia. I like reading your magazine very much. But I don’t like anything without music. Do me a favour. Write stories about music in the magazine and make me happy. Roger Hovekie Windhoek.

Dear Learn and Teach I really enjoy reading your magazine. When I finish reading the magazine, I always give it to somebody else. I liked your story on skin lightening creams. I learnt about the damages of hydroquinone. After I read the story, I had a good look at my creams. I saw that all my creams have hydroquinone. Now I don’t use those creams anymore. Most people use skin lightening creams because they want to lighten their skins. But some people buy the creams because they have pimples and spots. We must blame the chemists -they tell those people to buy the creams with hydro­quinone. Can I ask Learn and Teach a favour. Can you please give us a list of all the good creams? Nomathemba Ndlebe Peddie Thank you for your letter. We think your idea is very good. We will try print a list of the good creams soon. -editor
