• I have read your article regarding the Niall Mellon Township Trust involvement in South Africa and I have to say I am furious about your opinion on the ethos of the charity. I am in no doubt that it is also completely incorrect.
I have been a volunteer in this organisation since 2005. My reason for getting involved came following a holiday to South Africa where I came across townships spread around its countryside.
These people live in the most appalling conditions and are doing their utmost to improve themselves by getting employment and education, but due to the ethnic divide and segregation that still exists in South Africa it is a very difficult to obtain these.
