Zambians based in South Africa have donated a total of 1000 blankets to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) Children’s Ward.
Receiving the blankets, Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa thanked ZASA for the initiative.
He said the mindset of many people was that government would do everything, but the Zambians in South Africa had demonstrated that individuals could make a difference through individual contributions.
ZASA President Ferdinand Simanya said the organisation started the initiative to alleviate the conditions of children admitted to the UTH.
The handover was done at the Edenvale Sports Club on Saturday, 22 October 2016 where Independence Day celebrations were organised in the form of a Sports Festival attended by ZASA branches from across the country.
