Not for ourselves, but for others...

Women's Auxiliary of the SA Legion

Every month members of the Women’s Auxiliary conduct welfare visits to a number of hospitals and homes that provide assistance to veterans. These include Valkenberg Hospital, The Salvation Army Home, Robertson House and the Happy Valley Shelter in Simon’s Town.

The men, all military veterans, are the recipients of parcels provided by the Women’s Auxiliary and are representative of those who have put their lives on the line for South Africa.

Says the chairperson of the Women’s Auxiliary, “We pack the parcels, which include basic toiletries and some sweet treats, and we deliver the parcels ourselves. This gives us the opportunity to meet the recipients and get a better understanding of who they are and the circumstances under which they live. It may be a small thing, but every bit helps and the recipients are so appreciative of the assistance we provide.”
