OUR FOUNDER

The WAS Foundation was founded on the 27th of October 2009 by Esmarelda van Zyl, rescuing animals from local townships and re-homing them into loving approved homes.
 
In 2011 Esmarelda won the Nedbank’s Hero of the Year Award and was donated R10 000, which she promptly decided to give back to those who helped her in achieving the award, the community! That was also when Coronation Park was discovered, a white township in Kurgersdorp.
Soon it was not only about helping desolate animals. Esmarelda decided to give a voice to the people who could not speak for themselves; our starving community!
 
Esmarelda and her team of volunteers have been working non-stop since that day to uplift the communities that they touch.
