Rhodes

Social Upliftment |

20 August 2015

The Rhodes 52km Trail Run was founded amongst others by the practice’s Reinard le Roux, our former Chairman, and is held annually in July in extreme weather conditions.  Historically, our role in this event has been to man a check-point and feeding station for the runners along the treacherous route. However, the DM Kisch Inc. Team involved in this event were touched by the plight of community in the virtually forgotten hamlet of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape province.

Therefore, and as part of our social outreach programme, DM Kisch Inc. undertook and organised the re-painting and revamping of the six classrooms of the Rhodes Public School, Zakhele.  Apart from a fresh coat of paint and a thorough clean, each classroom now boasts brightly coloured educational material and each of the 237 children was supplied with a full set of stationery.

It is our intention each year to continue this social upliftment programme in Rhodes and the surrounding community.
