Dutch donations

Jessie Julius, co-founder of the AJ Foundation; Frank Steyn, manager of Run4Schools; Sebastiaan Messerschmidt, Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Africa; Dr Lauren Swart, administrator of the AJ Foundation and Nichola Walker-Woodard, Deputy Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Africa.

The Dutch government has teamed up with local online retailer Yebo Fresh, as well as Netherlands-based Run4Schools, a foundation that finances and organises in-school and after-school sports care in the townships of South Africa, to help families in need in the Mitchell’s Plain area. With donations of 530 food parcels to be delivered, this contribution will help many people who have been struggling to cope as a result of reduced incomes over the past few months. One of the donations was handed over at Westridge High School on Thursday August 13 with principal Edgar Magaar and Sebastiaan Messerschmidt, Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in South Africa.
