Beadwork is a traditional handcraft decorating with beads in South Africa.

Staff of KLSSA in Cape Town have voluntarily painted the container and arranged for the installation of the door, windows and air conditioner so the container can be used as a bead workplace. In addition, this donation was in association with our service providers, APM TERMINALS SOUTHERN AFRICA of which SATL FREIGHT (PTY) LTD provided the transport.
