The Association for Persons with Disability takes care of people with physical and or mental disabilities for the entire Limpopo Province. Members of this association work for a fruit and vegetable project where they cut, peel and pack vegetables for a fruit and vegetable chain. They also produce other health products that are sold to ensure some income for the organisation.

“The Association for Persons with Disability plays a very important role for people with disabilities in the Limpopo Province. It is great honour to be able to set up this meeting for them," said Mthobi Tyamzashe, Vodacom’s Executive Director for CSI.

Each member, between the ages of 20 and 40 with various disabilities, received gifts from our players before our training session at the stadium where we meet Kaiser Chiefs on Saturday.
