As part of the Woman’s Day celebrations, the South West Rand Regional Council based at St Joseph Catholic Church in Zone 4 Meadowlands, presented the knit-a square blankets to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. The blankets which were hand-knitted by women of the Catholic Women’s League (South West Rand Region) were later donated to projects that deal with the wellbeing of children, namely; Door of Hope and Diepsloot Youth Projects.
