Human Rights - Community Chest Carnival cancelled

In today's show, we spoke to Lorenzo Davids – CEO of the Community Chest of The Western Cape. Last week Tuesday the Board and the Management of the Community Chest announced their decision to cancel this year’s Community Chest Carnival. The carnival is a fundraising platform. The money raised at the Carnival is then distributed amongst some 300 social development organizations which the Community Chest supports in the Western Cape. Mr Davids explained more about the reasons that led to this decision. Over the following nine months the Board and the Management will work with all volunteers and stakeholders to strategize a new and exciting Carnival 2015 in order to provide the necessary funding to community organizations at an acceptable level.
