On the cold morning of 21 May, blankets and fleece throws were piled high in front of the Hoerikwaggo building on upper campus. CHED's Transformation Committee's Events Committee was about to embark on a trip to the Diep River informal settlement. There, waiting for their arrival was Auntie Hannetjie, a volunteer, who we are told, left her children behind in Ceres to attend to the needs of the Diep River community. That day, she offered to be the staff members’ guide into the nooks of the settlement.
