District 410A donated R1,000 to Camphill Village as a birthday gift in the name of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu who designated them as one of his birthday beneficiaries.
DG Maisie decided to help feed the piggies as an additional service project. Accompanied by PDG Clive Fox they toured the facilities which are home to many challenged residents. Operating as productive farm their cows are milked twice daily and the milk is turned into lovely cheese. There is a bakery as well which supplies bread to commercial customers in Cape Town as well as for the residents through their shop.
Camphill Village needs to raise funds in excess of R43,000 per resident per year and also runs a regular market selling dairy products, bread, natural handmade soaps and other handmade products.
