But are these really R20,000’s worth of toys?
The South African Red Cross Society’s day care facility in Rynfield, Benoni, recently received a donation of R20,000 from the Royal Netherlands Embassy. The organisation used the money to purchase toys such as wheelbarrows, rakes, spades, sand buckets, puzzles and other educational toys for the children at the centre as pictured below – being displayed with a ‘demographically-balanced’ group of small children named Karden Pillay, Zoe Dreyer, Ofentse sefolo and Jesirah Vally.
Behind them are left: nursery school manager Margaret Pappas, and the Red Cross Society’s acting provincial manager for Gauteng, Matthew Htamoti. I’ve sent an enquiry (pictured below) to the SARCS in Gauteng questioning that these toys pictured below, could have cost as much as R20,000.
