Abantu Abadala “Conversations with the Elders”

We are very pleased to announce that our long anticipated  book is ready for purchase. This hard covered beautifully illustrated book highlights the stories of 16 ordinary  black men and women who lived before, during and after Apartheid, and their message of love, peace and healing for the world.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu wrote the Foreword (attached) and it includes inserts from various interesting people like Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mahatma Gandhi). Both Tutu and Gandhi visited the seniors with Uthando.

Proceeds from the sale of the book will support the two seniors projects Masibathande “lets love them” Seniors Project and Neighbourhood Old Age Home (NOAH)assisting more than 200 seniors in Khayelitsha.

Books are retailing at R250.00 plus VAT, ie R285.00.

Purchase 20 books or more and the price will be R200.00 per book plus VAT, ie R228.00 per book

Please find attached :  Foreword by Archbishop Tutu, some photographs from the book, and photos from the official book launch on the 9th of September.

One of our first books sold we received this email :

“we had a marvelous time in Cape Town and an incredible journey overall in your country.  Our Cape Town visit was highlighted for me ( and I think I can speak for Margie, JAimie and Andrew ) by our visit with the elders!  I was touched by their warmth and caring.  I read the book on the flight home.  Very inspirational.  It touched my soul! “
