John - "Aaaaw epic bru!"

John - "Aaaaw epic bru!"

The first time John, or Sipho as he is called in Langa, Cape Town, joined us in Thailand with his red socks was in August 2017. In boiling 30+ degree heat he was still committed to wearing the symbol of the charity he founded and for which his heart beats. As many others have, he stayed on, as many others have, he stayed in touch and as many others, we became dear friends.
