Taking home not one but two awards for ‘Country Winner for South Africa’ and winner for ‘SADC South Region’ for the category ‘Welfare and Civil Society Organisations’.
On asking Elize what the award meant to her she stated. “I’m highly honoured to receive this recognition and pledge my on-going commitment to health and social issues for the good of our communities. My reward is indeed the development of the communities themselves through the help and support of organisations like CANSA.”
It is hoped this award will reinforce the trust in CANSA and the brand it has created fighting against and for the control of cancer in South Africa.
