In conclusion it is significant that the success and achievements of Khumbula Thina Inc and The Kafunga Foundation’s objectives could never have been reached without the vision and dedication of our Founder Volunteer Chairman Ms. Fleur Wales-Baillie. Her determined and relentless pursuit of the vision to ensure the ethos of the upliftment in South Africa, of ....The Land ....Its People ....Its Wild .... has been successfully achieved through diligent application.
