1 of our Project Coordinators (Clement) with Tanya who is now writing her Grade 7 exams. We recently paid for Tanya to sit her exams. She has been doing so well – being an A star student in her school.
We can’t believe it’s May 2015 already! Where has the year been going? We are so grateful for the support that we have been receiving, with the last donation of AUSD$1000 coming from the Carlton United Breweries Punters Club in Australia. With this donation we have been able to assist the patients and their families tremendously, by paying for the next 2 school terms for the children we are supporting along with buying food hampers for each family which will last them for 2 months.
Please see images below for May’s wonderful visit to the patients.
