President Obama was in South Africa and his motorcade actually passed in front of Living Hope as he made his was to Masiphumelele, one of the communities we work. Regardless of political feelings, it was a pretty cool site to see the President pass right by us. Living Hope used to be funded by PEPFAR (Presidental Emergency Plan for Aids Relief). That money from the US Government was cut when Obama took office. Living Hope was hoping to raise his awareness of an NGO effected by his decisions. It was a wild weekend as Marine helicopters and other US military prepared for his arrival.
Below are a few highlights from the month....love you all and your support.
