A lot of nice people, a cosy location in the city of Vienna, juwelery and handicraft from Kwa Zulu Natal, books, original victuals like – biltong, honey, Amarula - , a lot of interesting chats and over all the wonderful smell of koeksister, bobotie and bredie – this was this year’s Xmas Market of the Friends of South Africa /FOSA/ in Pointers Vienna last Saturday.
HUMANA Austria was there – informing about “CAT – Child Aid Centre Tubatse”, selling symbolic sandbags to raise funds for the construction of our project.
Highlight was the visit of H. E. Xoslisa Mabhongo, Ambassador of the Republic of South Africa in Vienna, stressing in his speech the importance of the activities of HUMANA Austria – raising funds by clothes collection and sale – for building a common good future together with our friends in Tubatse.
He handed over a pretty full big bag of used clothes to the representative of HUMANA Austria, who in her turn forewarded warm and heartful thanks for the support and the constructive cooperation with the Embassy and the Friends of South Africa, a cooperation, which will be deepened and enlarged in the future.
