The word sisanda means 'we are growing' in Xhosa and we have decided to apply that to ourselves. 2011 saw the birth of the beautiful Hannah (our first Sisanda FunDaytion baby) to her delighted parents Leesa & Dom. We are also very excited to welcome Leesa back to the Sisanda FunDaytion Family and know that she has big plans for this year’s fundays. Megan Hedenskog joined us in August leaving behind the film industry (and her high heels) to work on the fundraising arm of Sisanda FunDaytion and to help out with the Fun Days (in sensible shoes).
In 2012, Anja Wilkinson-Bienmüller joined Sisanda FunDaytion to start our much-anticipated Sisanda Circles Programme. She brings her infectious laugh (and German precision) to our team. We also want to give a big Sisanda FunDaytion welcome to the gorgeous girls, Madelaine and Juliette (who we think look just like their mommy). We wish Martha some well-deserved rest and can’t wait until she’s back with us again.
