Dr. Jill Biden visits Mapatla

Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of the Vice President of the United States, visited Mapetla Day Care during the world cup. Her visit provided a welcome opportunity to highlight the excellent care provided to over 100 children on a daily basis. All children at Mapetla are personally connected to the HIV/AIDS pandemic- as they may have HIV/AIDS and/or a family member. In addition to the academic support given by loving teachers, each child receives daily hot meals. The children learn English and greet American visitors by singing songs.
Hospice Wits has expanded Mapetla's services to include after school care for children elementary school age. Mapetla is an example of the many extraordinary services our sister hospice provides. Hospice Wits relies on donations and grant support to keep Mapetla operational. Won't you consider donating funds to help them keep this important program.
