Scavenger Hunt Africa 2020

VESA has established a program in association with the local Prince Induna, which identifies families in dire need of help, so we can build houses for them as part of the project.

We are building a home for Derek, his wife, and six children. During this week Derek approached us and stated that he has not been able to feed his children, and that this brings his entire family to tears. Matt and Cass organized a scavenger hunt for the volunteers with a 50R entry fee. They raised a total of 2750R which was used to purchase bulk food items from Mtubatuba. The volunteers were very passionate in this group and it was amazing to see so many of them participate in this additional activity to support the family.
