'Mzansi', is a lively and famous restaurant in the Langa township just 20 minutes drive from central Cape Town.
A guided visit of the township is the best way to introduce visitors to the daily life of the community, followed by traditional African food and music at Mzansi.
The restaurant business success serves to provide jobs, inspire and assist people in need in the community. It is a beacon of hope for many.
In 2018, the founder, Nomonde, was made aware of a metastatic breast cancer... and in 2020 the restaurant business came to a complete stop due to the virus situation.
The only way to get urgent, quality medical attention was to turn to costly private healthcare... unthinkable for anyone living in a township.
With no revenue, even a successful business burns cash fast and there was no way Nomonde's family could pay for treatment.
So ACT stepped in to help.
Costly World-Class private treatment and equipment are within just 15 minutes drive from Langa...but not available to those without private insurance. So ACT, through the generous help of the donors, covered all medical costs from 2019 to 2023.
Despite your unfailing support and the efforts of all concerned, Nomonde left us in May 2023 after a lengthy and arduous fight for life.
Her family and ACT wish to thank you for everything that was done.
The brighter side is that the time bought through treatments enabled Nomonde to pass on the management of Mzansi to her sons. They continue to successfully welcome tourists from around the World seeking to safely experience what true township life is all about.
Once again: a huge and sincere THANK-YOU to you all who contributed.
