Over R100 000 has been raised by the International Diplomatic Spouses Association (IDSA) for South African charities. The money was raised at IDSA’s charity fundraising Golden Gala dinner which took place on 30 May 2015. Among the 230 people attending were more than 30 IDSA members and nearly as many Ambassadors and High Commissioners.

In welcoming guests, IDSA’s President, Ms. Rana Mansour, noted that every year the association seeks to raise funds to help vulnerable women and children in South Africa. “Our prime concern is to help underprivileged groups, especially women and children. Last year alone, IDSA donated over R170 000.00 to ease the plight of women and children through various charities, in addition to direct donations of food, toiletries, and toys and hours of volunteer work,” she said.

The Guest Speaker was Ms.Ndileka Mandela, the first grandchild of Nelson Mandela, She spoke about the Thembekile Mandela Foundation, named in honor of her father, and explained about the foundation’s aspirations and goals to uplift rural communities through its education and health programs.

Entertainment was provided by a traditional Afro-jazz artist called Morayks. This dynamic performer is well known in Gauteng for his high-voltage shows which inevitably get everyone on their feet. Morayks is an accomplished musician who has performed with the likes of multiple Grammy winner Bebe Winans and the legendary South African singer Vusi Mahlasela. Recently Morayks won Best African Jazz Album and was a nominee in the Best Sepedi Album at the 9th Annual South African Traditional Music Achievement (SATMA) Awards. His debut album-Lesotho was released in September 2013.
