How Nomzamo Mbatha carries the #luquluqu mission: When you’ve walked a parallel journey- different but with a similar thread- without even speaking, you can connect, it seems. @nomzamo_m slips into a level of comfort with @refugees women and demonstrates a level of empathy and support that is remarkable. She is living the #LuQuLuQu mission: fanning the embers of hope, holding up their resilience for all to see. #doitluquluqu ! It’s more than giving, it’s a lifestyle #soisluquluqu

“At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought but what we built, not what we got but what we shared, not our competence but our character, and not our success, but our significance.
