LEAVING A LEGACY FOR LIFE – Remembering Melanie Kwan
On 2 May three years ago, Melanie Kwan passed on but made sure that the EWT was included in her will. Her nephew Jayden, aged 12, wrote these wonderful words of tribute to Melanie.
“Melanie always loved animals and saving them! She had cancer but that did not stop her from loving animals. She always appreciated animals just the way they were, and not the way she wanted them to be. Every week she would go to the animal shelter and take a few hours out of her day to help them even though she was not well. She loved going to the Kruger National Park and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park when she was well enough to go. She was brave and independent and her very last trip to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park was on her own.
When the time came to write down her will, Melanie decided to donate everything for the love of animals and dogs. She chose the EWT because she wanted to forever take care of animals in the wild even though she knew she could not do that herself. The money will help those animals who are always being killed. I want my own children one day to be able to see those animals that God created.
We love you Aunty Melanie and appreciate all the time and effort and money that you put into animals. Thank you Aunty Melanie!”
