“Dear Mariette, Sylvia, Jamie & Yvette,
I just wanted to update you on SaffCanada 2022.
The Festival was a great success, raising $54,000.00 net for Education without Borders to provide educational opportunities for at-risk and disadvantaged learners in South Africa and Canada.
I’m delighted to let you know that Jozi Gold won the People’s Choice Award for the best documentary at the Festival. Well done!! “
