A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to such a lovely lunch with a beautiful bunch of women.
We all gathered to learn about Orange Babies at the beautiful chic city home of Doreen de Waal.
The de Waals are very good family friends of ours and I always love being in their company and home. The property somehow makes you feel like you're on a farm somewhere out of town.
|yes, those are "O"s of ciabatta bread hanging over the table.|
The table was most beautifully set. Hannerie Visser, Doreen and Jade had put together the most fantastical table. Every next course was revealed under the layers of paper. #SoClever
Jade de Waal of Food Jams and her helpers were running around us preparing the interesting menu that was paired with our talk.
After we were all settled, Adrienne told us all about Orange Babies.
Their aim is help women with HIV and their babies in Africa.
They support children who are infected with the virus or who otherwise are directly affected.
Since launching the foundation in 1999 by original founder Baba Sylla, this amazing initiative has had a positive impact in South Africa, Namibia and Zambia. They do this by having 2 main objectives.
Objective 1 is to prevent mother to child transmission as well as educating young HIV negative woman through educational programmes.
Objective 2 is to care for the orphans that are left behind and vulnerable children who need medical care, food, education and day to day support.
