STUDENTS VISIT ELDERLY TO COMMEMORATE WOMEN’S MONTH
By: Njabulo Ndlovu
The Public Relations students from the Durban University of Technology visited The Association For The Aged (TATFA) home for the elderly as part of their Women’s Month celebration.
At the beginning of the year, they were given an organisation to work with as part of their curriculum. They decided to go back to TAFTA and do something the women there will never forget.
The students hosted a tea party for the women living at the home, putting a smile on all their faces.
Anne Will said that they were happy about the good deed the students did for them.
“Our manager told us about this party- she told us to come down and to tell our friends.
It was lovely- we have had a lot of nice things to eat, and I think we will need to exercise after this party to put off some weight,” said Will.
She added that she would love the students to come again next year. She concluded by saying that she is grateful to the students for remembering them.
“I would like to say thank you very much, it was a wonderful gesture,” she added.
Student and organizer, Gugu Gwambe, said that everything went accordingly and people should value women.
“The tea party went well. I didn’t expect them to be this happy. I believe that women should be appreciated for what they went through during apartheid, because it is these old women who were young then- they should be celebrated,” said Gwambe.
She concluded by thanking the group she worked with for the hard work and the money they put in.
