Random Acts of Kindness with Dis-Chem

Dis-Chem Foundation donates R80 000 to school for the mentally handicapped

Over the years the school has being experiencing some operational and financial difficulties. The teachers bring in their own toys from home to the school, and make up their own teaching aids.

The Dis-Chem Foundation in partnership with CapeTalk donated R80 000 to the school to help them carry on doing the good work in caring for the this children.

Liezl Brown of the The Mary Harding School thanked Dis-chem Foundation for the donation saying it will help ease some of the financial burdens they have.

The money is going to make a huge difference to what we doing...
