Women's Day is celebrated on August 8 in South Africa. This year we held our Women's Day celebrations two days later, and invited caregivers and teachers to join us at our hall in Harare Square.
First up was a planning session to set up the event details. Mdebuka and Winkie met our communications team member Kerry at CottonOn Body at Blue Route Mall, who kindly gave us a discount on their lovely CottonOn Foundation tote bags. HillTop Spar joined in with donations of sanitaryware and other items to fill the tote bags, and then the team set to with great enthusiasm and creativity to set up the hall, decorate tables and prepare to host 350 ladies.
It was a special day for all involved! Stories of hope, courage, a few tears and lots of laughter. Delicious food, and a tribute to the lovely ladies who are the heart and hands of our communities.
