Christmas party

Part of the entertainment involved a nativity play, which was performed by some of the children invited to the event.

The Khoisan Indigenous Women in Action (KIWIA) hosted their second annual Christmas party for Cape Flats children at Garlandale High School in Athlone, on Sunday December 18. More than 70 children between the ages of four and 16 were treated to live music, food and Christmas gifts at a fun-filled afternoon. The programme included a nativity play performed by children from the Bonteheuwel, Manenberg, Heideveld and Kewtown communities. KIWIA chairperson, Mary Jansen, delivered a playful message of inspiration that encouraged the children to love themselves, and the history of the Khoisan, which she believes can help create more love for one another. KIWIA’s mother body, the Cochoqua Khoisan Tribal House, sponsored the event and its executive members who came as far as Paarl, also attended.
