Minister Carlisle Accepts 10 000 US Dollars on Behalf of Nyanga Orphanage
On 12 March, Robin Carlisle, the Minister of Transport and Public Works in the Western Cape, will accept a cheque to the value of 10 000 US dollars from a group of Americans on behalf of Nyanga orphanage Emasithandane.
The orphanage was started in 1994 by Zelphina Maposela (who herself grew up as an orphan) after parents living with HIV/AIDS requested that she care for their children. Mama Zelphina serves as the Director of Emasithandane, which houses 39 children and feeds a further 25 from the surrounding area.
Well-known benefactor Michael Tladi will also be in attendance.
