As part of the study abroad program in South Africa, CSUSB students, university President Tomás D. Morales and faculty director Tiffany F. Jones visited the Othandweni Family Care Centre in Soweto, delivering $2,000 worth of diapers, formula, toiletries, school supplies, rice and maize meal with funds donated by community members, President Morales, university staff, faculty and students.
A GoFundMe page has been established to raise funds to purchase much needed items for the Orthandweni Family Care Centre, an orphanage that cares for abused, abandoned or orphaned children, and which the students will visit while in South Africa this summer.
In addition, they were able to donate much needed supplies of diapers, wipes and space heaters to the Othandweni Family Care Centre.
The nine undergraduate students participated in the summer study abroad program, and were in South Africa on July 18, which marked the 100th anniversary of Mandela’s birth.
