Celebrating International Women's Day
They say the test of any society is the way it treats its older citizens. All Out Africa participated in this test by visiting an elderly grandmother of the area to clean her house, yard and donated food to her as part of community service in commemoration of the International Women’s day.
On March 9th pre-school children and their teacher from Ngodini NCP (Neighborhood Care Point) in Mahlanya, the cooking ladies, All Out Africa staff and volunteers visited Gogo Bessie Mndzebele nee Dlamini, an elderly resident of Mahlanya community. She is survived by her primary school-age grandchildren, as almost all her children have passed on.
Her own grandchildren participated in the day’s activities, leaving Grandmother speechless. She expressed her jubilation, upon receiving the mealie meal and soup along with basic cooking goods, a donation to her by All Out.
All Out Africa staff and volunteers recognizes and praises the women in the communities we serve, and feel honored to know such courageous, selfless and caring people.
