Kilimanjaro Presentation & donation to Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa

Rotarian Peter Makhari gave us a very inspirational presentation of his summit up Kilimanjaro with his son, Lufuno. This was a dream come true for Peter and members of our club sponsored the climb for every meter starting as low as 1 cent per meter. A total of R17 000.00 rand was raised and Peter elected to have the proceeds donated to his favourite charity, Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa (CHOC). CHOC was established in 1979 as a support group to parents of children with cancer, by parents of children with cancer. Having experienced the immense emotional and financial toll that cancer takes they recognized there is more than one victim in the family of the child with cancer. Their aim was to ease the burden on parents facing the same journey by providing access to relevant, accurate information, as well as emotional and practical support. Linda Moore from CHOC gratefully accepted the donation from Peter Makhari and our President Alan Rock. In the photo is Peter's son Lufuno.
