In addition to their horse interest in South Africa, Bridget and David Latham have become very active doing charity work in Kawazulu-Natal. It has become the passion of many horse people over the past 10 years - Melinda Moore, David Latham, Linda Gagnon, Scarlotte Mattson, Victoria Bleeden, Danny Buggs, Joe Smith, Melissa Moore, Mike Roberts, Kim Mattingly, and many others have traveled to Natal bringing food, clothing and hope to many.
They sponsor the "Happy Singers", a group made up of young men in the Melmouth South Africa area, who have just completed an album which will provide much needed funds for their families. Jubalani - a village made up of handicapped residents also receives food, clothing and funds. There are many children receiving an education and medical care due to the efforts of our group.
"We have had so many wonderful experiences within South Africa and in particular the Natal area that we always are looking forward to our next visit. Due to our wonderful extended second families we feel like we are going home when we leave for the Simunye Village," -Bridget Parker, Owner of Parker View Farms.
