Children In The Wilderness (CITW) South Africa has received a number of wonderful donations, and some of our Johannesburg staff headed out to hand these over to our various communities.
Bongani Baloyi handing over sanitisers and masks for the Makuleke schools and clinic
First stop was the Simson community near Alldays in Limpopo. Here we handed over donated hand sanitisers to two of our CITW-supported schools in the area, as well as facemasks for the local clinic.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Skoert Products and Elizabeth Lategan for this generous and life-changing support.
Two bicycles were also donated to Modikwa Primary School in Simpson. The Eco-Club mentor will run an environmental competition offering the bicycles as prizes to two schoolchildren.
These bicycles will be awarded to two schoolchildren in an environmental competition
We then headed north to Mapungubwe National Park to hand over tents, sleeping bags and camping pillows to the Trans-Frontier Conservation Area (TFCA) Rangers’ anti-poaching unit. These rangers often sleep out in the open, exposed to the local wildlife, including elephants, lions, scorpions, etc.
CITW and Nedbank Tour de Tuli donated tents, sleeping bags & children’s backpacks to TFCA Rangers
We also handed over school bags to the rangers’ children. These children are often ostracised for being a ranger’s child due to the incidence of poaching in the area.
