Long-standing supporters chip in again

05 September 2011

Dr Max Price and Mohamed Tahir SondayUCT vice-chancellor, Dr Max Price, praised the "fantastic" work of the Hospital Welfare and Muslim Educational Movement (HWMEM) when the organisation handed the university a bursary cheque of R146 000 recently.

And that wasn't all. Following government's decision that final-year students will have their National Student Financial Aid Scheme loans converted to bursaries, HWMEM promised to make a further R80 000 to R100 000 available for needy students at UCT.

The organisation has been making an annual contribution towards student coffers since the late 1960s. In picture, Price accepts the latest cheque from the HWMEM's life president, 92-year-old Mohamed Tahir Sonday.
