Noah sat down with Ramaphosa at Tuynhuys where the two “discussed a wide range of issues, including the impressive philanthropic work that Trevor’s Foundation is doing in supporting orphans and young people with education and life skills,” according to Government Communication and Information Systems (GCIS).
