We had a wonderful interview with her, and will be publishing a long article in our second issue of Sweet Life (along with some lovely photos taken at the Union Buildings in Pretoria – very fancy!) For now, I just wanted to let you know about the Bongi Ngema-Zuma Foundation, in case you haven’t heard of them. Here’s how they describe themselves:
The Bongi Ngema-Zuma Foundation is at its formative stage, but has firm and far-reaching ambitions. The foundation aims to address issues including health (non-communicable diseases with Special Focus on DIABETES), education and rural development.
Although they say the foundation is at its formative stage, they’ve actually been hard at work getting involved in projects all over the country (I’ll blog about them one by one) and spreading awareness about diabetes and all kinds of non-communicable diseases. On the 26th November this year, they’re organising a walk in Bloemfontein (which we’ll be at!) to raise even more awareness.
Contact them to tell them about your diabetes project, or get involved in one of theirs. If you’re lucky, you may one day get to meet Madam Ngema-Zuma. I promise you it’s a meeting you won’t ever forget!
