On Tuesday, 12th May, the Rotary Club Claremont: CapeTown awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship, the highest accolade from the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, to social entrepreneur - Dr Basil Kransdorff.
A humorous moment was had by all as it was a surprise presentation organized by long term e'Pap supporter Jo Maxwell. In on the act was our Cape Town distributor, Harold Peters. Not a whisper from anyone.
Jo Maxwell, a Rotarian from Claremont Rotary Club was one of the first people to understand and recognize the e'Pap contribution to addressing malnutrition (hidden hunger) in relation to early childhood development. She introduced e'Pap to Cape Town creches 14 years ago. She continues to ensure that children receive it. For her efforts in the community, Jo received a Paul Harris Fellowship award in 2008. In 2014, Shelley Godsell was also awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship for their work in setting up the e'Pap Feeding Project in the Eastern Cape www.epapfeeding.co.za. Shelley and Peter Godsell created the e'Pap feeding program that now feeds e'Pap to 5,000 children in 95 schools across the Garden Route in South Africa. The exciting part of this project is the 100 volunteers in the area ensure that the children receive their e'Pap which forges great relationships across communities. This project is in its 13th year.
A surprised Basil received the award on behalf of the whole e'Pap team across Africa and now across the World. e'Pap Contributors have managed to distribute over 200 million food portions on our 15-year journey and commitment to be part of making Africa - nutrient replete.
