A time to reflect on others less fortunate

Christmas is a time for thinking of those who are not as fortunate as ourselves, so we were very pleased to receive an email this morning from Lyn Jacobs, who is in charge of the Vineyard Hotel's excellent audio-visual facilities. Each year MEI makes a donation, on behalf of the conference delegates, to local children's charities.  Lyn has used the funds donated from all her clients to treat the children (mostly abandoned, abused, or HIV positive) of Lydia’s Safe House in Nomzamo (a township in Strand just outside Cape Town) to a day of fun. The Safe House also received gift vouchers from Shoprite.

 She has sent me these wonderful photos of the day:

Coincidentally, on the same day Amanda made a donation, on behalf of MEI, to her children's primary school, who are raising money to install solar panels. If any local businesses would like to contribute, please link on the logo below:
