Rag reaches out to the community
2007-09-17

The spirit of Ubuntu was again reflected this year in a community outreach programme of the University of the Free State's (UFS) Rag when residence students from the Main Campus in Bloemfontein recently visited various centres in Bloemfontein to distribute hampers. Almost 850 hampers were distributed to residents from Mooihawe, Ons Tuiste, Boikhuco Old Aged Home, Omega Service Centre, Nicro's Street Children Project, The Salvation Army, Pelonomi Hospital and the Heidedal Feeding Scheme. The students were thanked with song, prayer and dancing. During the visit to Pelonomi Hospital were, from the left: Flip van Niekerk (Project leader of Ubuntu 2007), Mandus Taljard (Residente committee member for Rag from Veritas Residence), Moretlo Phakoe (Residence committee member for Rag from Madelief Residence) and a staff member and patient from Pelonomi Hospital.
