IPA South Africa report on a revived Free State Region

20 Mar 2020


IPA Free State Region held their AGM at Maselspoort on 8 February 2020.

The IPA Regional Committee has managed to revive the IPA Free State from a dormant to an active region.  We share a common interest to make IPA Free State a vibrant region where we engage with our members, interact with one another on a social level and engage in outreach programmes to assist in helping others who are in need.

During the Annual General Meeting of 8 February 2020, the Regional Committee made donations to two disabled individuals.

Free State Donation

Sargent J M Selemela, a serving police official who was involved in a motor vehicle accident that led to him being a paraplegic was one of the recipients.

Sgt Selemela is an active member of action cricket and a great example that his disability does not confine who you are, and that you can still do what you love and live a healthy, active life.  He is stationed at Mangaung Police Station.

Malita Els, the second recipient, was involved in a motor vehicle accident that led to her being a paraplegic, when she was pregnant 17 years ago. Her husband died five years ago. She has for many years prayed for a new chair, and with the IPA becoming aware of this wish, a wheelchair was donated to her on the day.

Malita says she’s never been on the receiving end, it’s her first time.
