TTN (Thol’ulwazi Thol’impilo Network) were very pleased to make the acquaintance of a dynamic young pupil Stephanie Maritz from Piet Retief Primary School.

Stephanie Maritz (who is currently in Grade 6) accompanied Siggi van Niekerk on some Mobile Clinic Site visits last week. This was part of her Land Services Project, the aim of which is ‘to bring hope and change to the people’. On Wednesday, 3rd October, Stephanie accompanied Mobile Clinic 2 to the Geyer, Witkop 1 and Witkop 2 Sites.

Here she handed out clothes, tinned food and sweets to the people and children of these communities. On Thursday, 4th October, Stephanie and Siggi then went out with Mobile 5 to the Avoca and Mahlabathini Sites. Here, Stephanie handed out more clothes, tinned food, sweets and chips, as well as seedlings that were donated to her by TWK (a total of 5,000 seeds).

The communities were delighted with their clothing, sweets and food, and there were many smiles at the Sites. Such a simple, kind gesture creates goodwill, and more importantly, brings hope to communities that are poor and suffer many hardships. TTN would like to thank Stephanie for her contribution to these communities and for choosing our Mobile Clinics to partner with her on her project. Keep up the good work Stephanie!

We would also like to thank Siggi van Niekerk (TTN’s Mobile Clinic Coordinator) for supervising Stephanie’s visit, and for the wonderful job she does in coordinating TTN’s 5 Mobile Clinics (a 6th mobile has been added to the fleet, and will be servicing the Paulpietersburg and surrounding communities).
