Marapyane Mpumalanga Australian sponsor December 2012Late in 2012, a family in Sydney, Australia sponsored 120 x Hippo Water Rollers to benefit the Marapyane community, a very remote and rural village in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

The beneficiaries are the poorest of the poor within the community. They were carefully selected by the community and were mainly AIDS orphans and child-headed families, as well as elderly grannies who are the only caregivers in the family, and some disabled people.

The hand over event took place at the local community centre on Wednesday 19 December 2012.
