Recently Margaret Hirsch was invited to the British High Commissioner’s residence in Pretoria to attend the honorary British Empire Medal handover for long-time friend, Bronwen Jones.


Bronwen, a British engineering geologist, author, and passionate human rights activist, was honoured for her tremendous work with South Africa’s young burn victims and her actualisation of the charity “Children of Fire Trust” – a foundation that provides support and rehabilitation to these children.


Margaret and Allan Hirsch, Trustees of Bronwen’s other charity –  the Johannesburg School of the Blind for low vision and multiple disability children, have also assisted by jointly purchasing the building which houses  the charity.
