With a moving song in the local language of isiXhosa sung by children and child and youth care workers, UK television celebrity and UNICEF supporter, Mark Wright is welcomed to the Safe Park in Middlepos on the outskirts of the neat, coastal town of Saldanha. The warm welcome is greatly appreciated by Mark who, accompanied by a team from the UNICEF UK National Committee and UNICEF South Africa, spent two full days with the children of this under-resourced community located 200 kilometers from Cape Town.
