A short while back Pick n Pay approached QASA to partner them in arranging and funding a specially adapted wheelchair for a little girl called Hlengiwe Msizi.

Hlengiwe recently celebrated her fifth birthday in her hometown of Worcester where she lives with her parents. This brave little girl hasbeen in treatment for post-meningitis hydrocephalus since birth. Unable to walk, and requiring constant care, Hlengiwe's plight was brought to Pick n Pay's attention by her parents.

QASA was honoured to share such a special moment with Hlengiwe and her parents during the handover of the wheelchair. The contribution of the wheelchair will, without doubt, make a big difference to her well-being and was graciously accepted by Hlengiwe and her family in Cape Town.

QASA is privileged to have been involved in this little girl's life, and to have played a role in making a meaningful difference to her life. There has been a 15 year relationship between QASA and Pick 'n Pay and the handover of this wheelchair again strengthens the meaning, and the value, of relationships between the corporate sector and NGO's.
