For many years our annual Soweto Walk and other donations have raised money to fund projects in South Africa. This enables the organisations to raise money and

materials locally. It also increases the solidarity that has existed since Apartheid days between the people of Wales and the community in South Africa.

Hanef spent last Christmas with his family in South Africa and took the funds collected in 2017 with him to distribute.

The 17 organisations supported were:

• J L Dube High School - Durban;

• CIKO Day Centre – Eastern Cape;

• PACSA - Pietermaritzburg;

• Young Natalians Sports Club – Pietermaritzburg;

• New Beginnings – ECD Projects, Durban;

• Save-Act Trust - Pietermaritzburg;

• Northdale Primary School - Pietermaritzburg;

• Zisize Educational Trust – Ingwavuma, Pongola.
