Durban Action Against Xenophobia

Events

PICNIC TIME

Please join us this this saturday (19th July) at 2pm for a picnic in Albert Park.

Bring your picnic basket (with some to share) and games (there are lots of kids and big sports fields ) and join us for a fun and relaxing time in the sun (in even of sudden and drastic downpour, it will be cancelled)

We are at the top of Albert Park, where the refugee tent is. Its on Diakonia Avenue, right at the top near the highway, and there is a drive in entrance with lots of parking.

Invite your friends and families. If anyone wants organise and bring people from other sites (especially the kids), that would make it even more fun.
