Visit to SAVF Margaretha Ackerman Tehuis
Good day Mr Loots and the Team
On behalf of the Management, staff and the residents of SAVF Margaretha Ackerman Tehuis, I will like to convey our deepest gratitude to you and your organisation for a heartwarming visit and an enlightening presentation about the Guide-Dogs Association South Africa.
Thank you for making us your welfare organisation of choice and for honouring our invitation. The saying that a dog is a man’s best friend could not have been truer, our friends on paws really warmed our hearts and took us down beautiful memory lane and the therapeutic nature of the residents’ interaction with the dogs cannot be underestimated, in fact it is what the doctor ordered.
Your educational, empowering and energetic presentation demonstrated the wonderful work you are doing in training and grooming the dogs to provide mobility guidance and companionship to people with visual impairments.
Thanks once more for giving the residents an opportunity to touch the dogs as well as the walk about around the old age home with the dogs and we appreciate the ease and mindful manner in which you and your team interacted with our residents.
The visit and the presentation were well received and for this act of kindness, we cannot thank you enough for helping us to improve our residents’ holistic wellbeing.
We are grateful for your support and friendship and we wish you and your organization all the best with current and future plans.
Ms Ditlhare Mokhema
