In the economy of Gender equality, the black women is at the bottem, inspite of this she still finds a heart to love, care, nurture, and lead from there. She is the pillar of the village, she is the pillar of Africa

HOPE FOR BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS USING ART AND PHILANTHROPHY
Johannesburg: November 13, 2020: Today, the Smile Artists Africa Project is excited to announce their first annual auction to be held at Killarney Country Club on 3 December 2020 in support of breast cancer. Smile Artists Africa is founded by Dr Brian Monaisa, an internationally renowned Plastic Surgeon whose passions extend beyond the usual nip tuck. Dr Monaisa has pledged to donate a selection of his favourite art pieces for the auction because “art is to be enjoyed for a period and then shared”.
Breast cancer is one of the top five most common cancers amongst South African women. New developments and progress have been made in diagnosis and therapeutic surgery, but there remains a gap champion reconstructive surgery for all breast cancer survivors. Smile Artists Africa aims to contribute towards reducing this burden and helping South African women to get the most from a renewed life with breast reconstruction.
The project has collaborated with the below independent local artists to create exclusive art pieces on different art mediums esteemed art lovers and collectors would dream of owning.
• Azael Langa
• Cow Mash
• Cromwell Ngobeni
• Greatjoy Ndlovu
• Jan Jan Maanda
• Malose Pete
• Mbongeni Fakudze
• Nkensani Rihlampfu
• Olwethu De Vos
• Percy Maimela
• Siphiwe Makgoka
• Sizwe Khoza
• Sanusi Olatunji
• Treatwell Mnisi
• Zwelethu Machepha
Azael Langa is an artist and entrepreneur who has exhibited in several art galleries across South Africa and the world. His popular smoke master pieces have given him the opportunity to be featured in local and international art fairs. As the brand ambassador for Brand South Africa Play Your Part and an Art Partner to Boschendal Wines, his philosophy is that art is a lifestyle he weaves as part of his everyday life.
South Africa is abundant with local talent when it comes to the Arts and being able to combine the love of Art with a purposeful cause gives the specific artwork a transformed meaning. Many South African women go through breast cancer without the necessary support let alone having breast reconstructive surgery as an option. Dr Monaisa is using his love for art to lessen the burden faced by breast cancer survivors. One life at a time.
This auction will be conducted by Anton Welz, a renowned auctioneer who has expressed his support and commitment to the project. All proceeds and contributions from the auction will be donated towards breast reconstruction surgery for select breast cancer survivors in South Africa.
Partners in collaboration with the Smile Artists Africa project include:
• Brand South Africa
• Marang Aesthetics
• Stephan Welz & Co
• Boschendal Wines
With this auction being the first of many, guests can look forward to a soirée of entertainment and familiar faces within the media industry to come together for a worthy cause. This auction is not to be missed.

Lockdown travel: Government releases updated list of high-risk countries
Wednesday, September 30, 2020
With hours to go before the reopening of some borders following the easing of lockdown restrictions, South Africa has released a list of countries from which leisure travellers will not be allowed into the country.
Home Affairs Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, revealed the list of countries at a briefing on Wednesday on the reopening of borders and ports of entry for international travellers following South Africa’s move to level 1 of the lockdown.
*Leisure travellers from the following countries will not be allowed to travel to South Africa:
Bosnia and Herzegovina
The list follows President Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement that the country’s borders will be reopened for business and leisure travel for international travellers, subject to a number of restrictions for travellers.
These restrictions include that all travellers visiting the country will be expected to abide by the regulations, which include the mandatory wearing of masks at all times, practising social distancing in public spaces, regular washing or sanitising of hands and presenting a negative COVID-19 test result not older than 72 hours from the time of departure.
Should a traveller display any COVID-19–related symptoms or have been in contact with an infected person(s), they will be expected to take a mandatory COVID-19 test.
This test will be at the traveller’s cost. If the COVID-19 test comes back positive, the traveller will be subjected to a 10-day quarantine at a designated site.
The accommodation at a quarantine site will be at the traveller’s cost.
International Relations and Cooperation Minister Naledi Pandor said the decision taken with regards to high risk countries is “complex”.
She further said travellers to South Africa are required to have travel insurance.
The exception for travellers from high-risk countries will be business travellers with scarce and critical skills, including diplomats, repatriated persons, investors and people participating in professional sporting and cultural events, who will undergo the same health protocol screenings.
Also speaking at the briefing, Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu said leisure travellers from these countries will not be barred from entering South Africa forever.
“For now they are not allowed. It doesn’t mean they won’t be allowed in forever because even the high risk characterisation of their country might change to low or medium risk,” he said.
Pandor said data will be reviewed every two weeks.
Resumption of visa sand ID applications
Motsoaledi announced that the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) will extend the validity period of legally issued visas, which expired during the lockdown period.
The validity of these visas will be extended to 31 January 2021.
“When the lockdown started, we announced that all those who are on visas, which will expire intra-lockdown, were extended to 31 July 2020. We then extended it to 31 October. It is clear that by 31 October 2020, things would not have changed.
“All those with [legally issued visas] will be regarded as valid until 31 January next year. Anyone, who has a visa that has expired, has nothing to fear,” he said.
However, this only applies to visitors already in South Africa.
Holders of such visas are permitted to remain in the country under the conditions of their visit.
Those wishing to be repatriated to their country within this period can depart without being declared undesirable.
“We want to assure such people that if you arrive with a visa that has expired, because we deem it to be valid until 31 January 2021, you won’t be declared undesirable [when you leave],” said Motsoaledi.
In addition, the DHA is also resuming services for applications of identity documents (ID) or documents for all types of passports.
“People can now apply for IDs and passports,” he said.
