Round two of Operation Winter Warmth

The South African Zakah Fund (SANZAF) visited Rio Grande Primary School in Manenberg on Wednesday, 9 April in the second Operation Winter Warmth Campaign edition for 2014.
The day began early for the SANZAF Distribution Department as they arrived at the school to prepare two hot meals and a winter pack consisting of a woolly beanie, scarf and gloves for the learners.

The morning assembly began with a hum of excitement circulating throughout the school at the news that SANZAF was on site.
