Visit of SA Guide Dogs
23rd June 2015The South African Guide Dogs Association for the Blind as well as King David Interact Club visited our club during our meeting held on Tuesday 23rd June. A wonderful donation of R50 000.00 was handed over to Pieter Van Niekerk of the Guide Dogs Association which was raised through various fund raising efforts from our Rotary club as well as King David Interact Club and even some individuals in their private capacity.
We now sponsor a total of 5 dogs for training all the way from puppy stage to full companionship for the blind. It is always so uplifting to see these beautiful animals and the great duties they perform for their owners once fully trained. Interact Club President, Daniel Shainfeld gave us an update of all the worthy community projects they are involved in. These young people are also an inspiration and serves as a great example of what can be done to make a difference in our communities.
