Mureedah Botha, Founder of The POPS Foundation: When The POPS Foundation formally launched as an organisation, our purpose was to serve the poorest of the poor in our communities. In this we have grown with leaps and bounds, from initially being responsible for a few hundred meals per month to more than 60 000 per month at present.

As we do not receive any formal grants, all supplies are purchased from funds which we raise ourselves, and with the assistance of the public and a few corporate donors.

In this we have been blessed to have the PE Express as a media partner.

From the outset, the Express has been an invaluable part of The POPS Foundation. Our journey would not have been as successful, had it not been for their generosity in covering our activities.

With each event and campaign that the foundation has launched, the Express has given us many valuable columns of space in their publications, helping us to spread the word near and far that together we can make a significant difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

It would be remiss not to mention that we have been truly blessed to have Zeldré Swanepoel as our liaison at the Express. From the very first she has been part of our journey, always approachable and friendly, dedicated and caring.

On behalf of the many thousands who we have served, and continue to serve, Happy Birthday, PE Express! Dankie, Thank you, Ndiyabulela for being part of our community and our lives! We love you!

Antoinette Esterhuyse, HOD: Merryvale School for Specialised Education:

For many years, Merryvale School for Specialised Education has had the privilege of receiving continuous support and loyalty from the PE Express.

Through their insight into the world of children with special educational needs, many events at Merryvale have been covered by their compassionate and caring journalists. Through the lens of various photographers, our activities are regularly conveyed to the broader public, and the community is enlightened regarding the lives of intellectually disabled persons.
