Madiba Day

In July our OVC centre in Mgababa, the Bjorn Centre, celebrated Madiba Day with the staff from Fish River Sun. This turned out to be a community affair as we had elderly members of the community and the local primary school closed to attend the celebration. The kids helped with the planting of seedlings in the centre’s garden. There was a huge cake which managed to feed  all 349 people who were there. We received a lot of gifts bought with the proceeds of a golf fundraiser held by the Fish River Sun (see pictures).  The Bjorn Centre and Keiskamma Education Programme thank the Fish River Sun for their continuing to join us on Madiba Day each year and for their thoughtfulness and generosity in donating so much useful equipment to us.
