Along with many of you we are devastated to hear about the recent unrest in Kwa Zulu Natal. Although this has taken place in close proximity to our beneficiary projects and our students' places of study we are pleased to say that no-one has been hurt. However, the impact is still devastating, causing food & fuel shortages, and lack of chronic medication in the short term and likely higher prices and loss of jobs to follow.
As I sit writing this newsletter, I can hardly believe it is mid-May, the wind howling and rain hitting the window is weather more reminiscent of November! A quote that was shared with me yesterday perfectly sums up my feelings today.
“The person who dances with you in the rain, will most likely walk with you in the storm” Vivian Greene
Welcome to the somewhat delayed final newsletter of 2020, as many of you will know I had to take a leave of absence due to family commitments and bereavement, so for me December 2020 and January 2021 have been personally challenging. As such a small charity, this means that some of our regular tasks had to be delayed but rest assured the essential ones of managing your generous donations and importantly, supporting and funding our beneficiary projects continued quietly throughout the period.
