LIONS HERO OF THE YEAR AWARD
We are happy to announce that the work done by Matla A Bana is not going unnoticed! On Saturday, COO Monique Strydom, won the Lions International District 410A (Western & Northern Cape and Namibia) the Hero of the Year Award. She was chosen from 10 nominees and was recognized for founding Matla A Bana and her continued dedication to this charity.
In her speech Monique stated that not only the nominees, but also each and every Lions volunteer are heroes because they have chosen to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Monique also thanked all the MAB volunteers, the officers of the law, the doctors, Lizel Van Eeden (project manager Gauteng), her family and God (for giving her a second chance)
