Blind community activist honoured for her selfless work

Seen is Mrs Dulcie Govender receiving the Women of the Year 2017 award from rotary president, Wulci Thaver.

The Rotary Club of Reservoir Hills hosted a Pamper Day recently. The annual event is held to treat women in the community. Dulcie Govender who recently turned 90 received the Women of the Year award for her ongoing work in the community.

Seen are the proud members of the Rotary Club of Reservoir Hills.

She has assisted the Child Welfare Society in Pinetown, the Fosa Fundraising Committee, and she has knitted garments for orphanages and underprivileged children for the Dawncliff Gardens Women’s Club. In 2015, the active community worker faced a difficult challenge – she went completely blind.

However, Govender never saw this as a problem but merely a challenge that she has risen above, giving birth to our Blanket Drive – Labour of Love project. She still managed to knit many squares and each one she poured her love and blessings.
