Where are you in the circle of life?

As you journey through life, your role may change from the one who nurtures and protects to the one who, in turn, needs care and protection.

The truth is, we may all need a helping hand as we get older. Tafta aims to inspire hope for the future and a sense of belonging through this powerful video.

As our 60th Anniversary draws near, we invite you to #InspireALegacy of hope and possibilities for older people in our community. Please SMS "donate" to 40555 to donate R20 (as many times as you like). Then share our video and message on social media with friends, and encourage them to join in the campaign too.


It begins with you. Please help make the circle bigger and open your heart by sending your SMS donation right now.
