During Lockdown, our volunteers , staff and elders have been overcome with the spirit of giving. We salute you all for going the extra mile to help others.

At John Conradie House and Langeler Towers, elders sewed up a storm to produce 670 masks within a single day! These were handed out to every resident at the Home.

At Tafta on Ridge, staff, volunteers and elders all lent a hand to ensure their Home was clean, hygienic and sanitised. Elders (pictured above) also helped to distribute food hampers received.

We recently received a note from one of the elders at Kings Hall, commending Sarrah Ebrahim (Building Manager) and Shamla Pillay (Assistant Building Manager) for going beyond the line of duty to ensure residents are kept safe during the Lockdown. These two ladies are ably assisted by the security team and cleaning staff of Kings Hall. Thank you to the entire Tafta team.

Being stuck in Lockdown can be frustrating when you have an important task to perform. That’s how Langeler Towers resident, Mary Anne, felt recently when she was unable to continue her weekly walk to Medwood Gardens in central Durban to feed 15 feral cats. Volunteer Miranda van Rooyen (pictured below) promptly took over this duty and the kitties continued to receive their food!
