Thanks to a generous contribution from cellphone network operator MTN, the producers of the animated movie of Jock of the Bushveld were able to donate a handsome amount from the proceeds of the Johannesburg premiere of the movie to RAGE. No less than R380 000 was handed over to RAGE, a contribution that will go a long way towards meeting the pressing needs of the tactical response units that are battling rhino poachers on the ground, including recruitment, training, and the supply of essential state-of-the-art equipment.
