The penguin patients of the South African Marine And Education Centre [SAMREC] in Port Elizabeth will support The Sunflower Fund on national Bandana Day on October 12. They too know what it is like to suffer and wish all those suffering from leukaemia a speedy recovery. With only an estimated 5 years before extinction the African penguin faces an uncertain future, but with help from SAMREC these penguins are given hope of a better future.
Pick n Pay and BP Express stores will be selling The Sunflower Fund bandanas for only R20 and all the proceeds are put towards assisting The Sunflower Fund increase the South African Bone Marrow Registry which exists to find and match bone marrow stem cell donors for patients who need a transplant, such as those with leukaemia and other life threatening blood disorders.
