It was with deep sadness that we learned of the fire at the Hope in Christ Home in Newcastle that claimed 11 lives, including that of Sarah Holland who founded and ran the home for the past 6 years.
The Board of the Siyakhulisa Abantwana Foundation has decided to make a significant donation to the Sarah Holland trust fund, set up to rebuild the centre and support the survivors. In the act of rescuing 9 of the survivors, including two newborns, Sarah died.
As a remembrance of her work and life, the Foundation has established the Sarah Holland Bursary Fund . This education bursary will be awarded annually to a deserving child from the Blue Crane Route Municipality in the Eastern Cape.
