She tagged her new foundation in her post and said its mission statement is:
"To empower children and enable them to live with dignity, where they are always safe, nurtured and their voices heard."

Even though she has her own company and has been part of highly-paying TV productions such as The Queen and Skeem Saam, her dad decided to spoil his bundles of joy this festive season.
