Tribute to Perry Feldman
It is with great sadness that we notify our FMF and Khaya Lam family that Perry Feldman, Khaya Lam’s Project Manager, died on Sunday of a Covid-related heart attack. His passing is a terrible personal loss to his family, friends and colleagues, and a devastating loss to the Khaya Lam project.
Perry dedicated the last years of his life to seeing the joys and security of private property rights extended to the most vulnerable South Africans. He took a grand idea and made it a practical reality.
When Perry took over management of the Khaya Lam (My Home) Land Reform Project, only 100 former council tenants had received title deeds to their homes. Today, over 10,000 have either already become home-owners or are in the process of becoming home-owners.
Perry, with his wife Veronica always by his side, literally changed the lives of thousands for the better. This will be his awesome and lasting legacy.
We will miss his generous spirit and kind nature and boundless energy to do good in the world.
