Family first – Joel and Kim Wawa

When you meet Joel for the first time, you see a big man, almost resembling an American basketball player.  You could easily feel intimidated, but rather than that, his huge, welcoming smile immediately makes you feel at home.  

Joel, who is originally from the Congo, speaks a number of languages including French.  He is a family man. A qualified operator by profession, who spent a lot of time away from home as his employer had contracts all over South Africa.  Despite the fact that the company paid him very well, being away from his family became a huge problem for him. With the motto family first, he decided to resign and started working for a company in his hometown. 

Joel met his beautiful wife Kim in South Africa. Kim comes from Zimbabwe and part of her family still lives there.  She grew up in a very loving, Christian home and learned the importance of strong family values from a young age.  Her dad was an amazing role model that taught her what a husband should be like.  No surprise that she chose to marry Joel. You can’t help but love Kim for the extraordinary person she is.  She believes and lives the Biblical values she grew up with.

Joel and Kim are a lovely young couple with 2 children, a boy and a girl, and live in Emalahleni.  Seeing Joel with his kids and the way that he listens and cares for them is noteworthy.  Even with his friends’ children, he portrays a loving father.

Kim, currently works in the hospitality industry.  Again, her wonderful attributes are quickly seen and she gets promoted easily.  The Covid pandemic hit hard in their business however, but Kim did not let this get her down. She took initiative and started using her baking skills to secure an extra income. Resilience!! Having come from a former modeling background, Kim knows the importance of looking and feeling your best. Taking care of your skin as you would your family, is a big part of this and she happily instills this value in her children.

Joel and Kim (and the kids) were very happy and grateful for the Epi-max products they received.  They didn’t expect such a huge gift. THANK YOU EPI-MAX.

 The Epi-max team spent the evening of 22 September sharing valuable information with our group of baby mommies. The online session was filled with scientific snippets and practical pointers that helped the mom’s understand the benefits and uses of the range of Epi-max products better. Thank you to Salmari Fourie and her team, for the insights shared and valuable BABY TALK provided!
