Lunch for seniors

Tafelsig and Khayelitsha seniors were treated to brunch and later lunch to give them some time out from the stresses of looking after their families.

His wife Yumna, co-ordinator of the soup kitchen, was not present as she was in hospital with their new son.

Annually they host their older neighbours and this year they had guests from Khayelitsha.
