DURBAN - #Triathlete Mhlengi Gwala thinks of his two daughter to fight off any negative feelings after surviving a brutal attack.
“Every step I take, I think of them. If I get depressed - they will have no daddy,” he told The Independent on Saturday, two months after a group of assailants tried to hack his legs off with a power saw while he was out cycling near the University of KwaZulu-Natal's #HowardCollege campus just before sunrise.
Gwala has high hopes that in a few months the pins in his leg will be out and he will be back cycling and swimming.
Meter hopes to gain support for his basket ball team through their #backabuddy#fundraising campaign https://¬www.backabuddy.co.za/-champion/project/¬hout-bay-hurricanes-b¬asketball-club.
Explaining their trip to the USA, he says: “We were invited by American NGO Meet and Teach. We are aiming to send 16 players and four coaches, to open the horizon of our players and young people in our community about the opportunities outside our community and the current socio-economic conditions within and expose the players to basketball expertise and up their #basketball IQ and skills,” Meter says. #crowdfunding#crowdfundingcampaign#donate#team#southafrica

@rabiesawarenessbodyineshowe began in August 2017, at the dawn of the Zululand #Rabiesoutbreak and have proven invaluable to their community. “The Department of Agriculture has 180 field workers in a province of an estimated 1.2 million dogs. Our aim was to take some of the load off their shoulders and assist with #rabiesawareness. We are currently 3 ladies that see to the running of our group on a daily basis – myself, Cathy Munro, Lee-Anne Watkins as well as 11 registered #vaccinators who #volunteer their time and assist when we run #vaccination campaigns in our area.” – says Dr Vanessa Meyer
