Last week, marking the start of Youth Month in South Africa (01 June 2020), the Embassy of Palestine, the African National Congress (ANC) and #Africa4Palestine (formerly BDS SA) visited the historic Orlando West High School in Soweto where Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including face masks were handed over to the Principal, Mr Joseph Malindi. The school reopened this week.
Present at the event was Ambassador Hanan Jarrar from Palestine, Miriam Saohatse from the ANC’s International Relations Sub Committee, the former head of South Africa’s National Intelligence Agency and ANC NEC Member, Billy Masetlha, and the Director of #Africa4Palestine Muhammed Desai as well as several ANC PEC and REC members.
This week the Embassy of Palestine together with the ANC and #Africa4Palestine will be visiting the North West province to also handover PPE to schools that are reopening.
