Built in 2010, the Butterfly Room was named for Matseliso, one of our children who coped bravely with illness for much of her short life. The day after she died many, many butterflies appeared, not only at Mants’ase but throughout the district. And so we associate butterflies with Matseliso, and the Butterfly Room is a cheerful room with everything needed to help take care of any child who is ill, and give them every encouragement to get better soon.
