KNP receives wheelchairs for use by tourists when needed
In a gesture of goodwill, the Germiston's Rotaract Club presented the Kruger National Park (KNP)'s managing executive, Abe Sibiya with 15 wheel chairs.
"We appreciate the donation and believe it will go a long way in assisting our guests who may need the chairs for any emergency. This gesture adds another dimension to our service standards in the park and reflects on the environment that is always evolving, beckoning us to improve on the needs of our customers," said Sibiya during his word of thanks.
The wheelchairs will be distributed from the doctors' surgery in Skukuza to the various camps throughout the park. Pastor Carl Lourens of the NG Church and the Skukuza medical doctors facilitated the donation.
The Rotaract is a Rotary's youth service club for people between ages 18-30 and has branches nationally and abroad. Most Rotaract Clubs are either community or university based and initiate social responsibility campaigns and projects aimed at improving the quality of people's lives.
The Club encourages the youth to make a difference in the communities by sharing thoughts about society and involvement in positive activities
