IPA South Africa’s Johannesburg region reaches out to those in need

24 May 2020

IMG-20200418-WA0019IPA Johannesburg member Charles Elliot became aware of the plea for assistance from Gerd


a van der Merwe of the Abraham Kriel Children’s Home in Modimolle, for any monetary and or food donations.

Charles contacted IPA Johannesburg Chairman, Claude Malan, and after putting the ball in motion, a consignment of fresh fruit and vegetables was donated by a friend from the Johannesburg Fresh Produce Market.

The challenge of course was how to get the donation to Modimolle, which is in another province, while no movement is allowed during the full lockdown period we are currently in. Charles went out of his way to obtain a permit for this humanitarian mission and delivered the consignment to the Abraham Kriel Children’s Home in Modimolle.

A further one thousand Rand (R1000) was donated from The IPA Johannesburg account to assist in any other expenses.

We as the IPA Johannesburg Committee want to thank Mr Charles Elliot in his efforts to assist the children’s home and to put a smile on a hungry child’s face.

Thank you Charles, we salute you!

Claude Malan, Chairman Johannesburg Region, IPA South Africa
