Zandile – All smiles

Zandile was born without a nose bridge. She is one of a twin, and her sister, Zianda, has normal facial features. Her life had been made miserable at school due to hurtful, and insensitive remarks from friends and learners.

With the mediation of TV Schools, a UK based NGO, plus Jikani support and intervention, the two NGO ‘s approached Smile Foundation for reconstruction surgery.


Zianda, who is Zandile’s twin (wearing the red headband) also very specifically asked me (in her words) to “Please pass on our regards and many thanks to everyone who helped”.

Zandile said something along the same lines, but a bit more emotionally!

Zandile & Zianda

So everyone, THANKS!
