Message of appreciation from the DG, Mandela Day Donations

DDGOn 31 July, as the Mandela Month came to an end, we handed over donations to the Leseding Centre for People with Disabilities in Tweefontein, KwaMhlanga. I was humbled and honoured by the act of kindness you demonstrated as officials of this department in making the lives of those needy inhabitants better.

The heartfelt appreciation at which those donations were received touched my heart deeply and made me realise the impact this initiative has made. Your open and giving hearts brought a huge relief to the centre and its inhabitants. This will go a long way in meeting the centre’s daily needs. The donated items ranged from clothes, shoes, blankets, food, toiletries, detergents and toys. It is important to note that this would not have happened without your commitment and willingness to help, you have been able to put a smile on the face of many.

I am also aware that some offices went out on the 18th of July in response to the very same call by helping out with cleaning, washing, cooking and helping children with homework at various centres. The difference that we are making in other people’s lives is really appreciated.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude to your response to the call of helping those who are less fortunate. Your goodness is noted and greatly appreciated. Let’s keep this good spirit and continue to demonstrate acts of goodwill to those who need it most.

May this act of kindness fulfill you forever. The owner of the centre indicated that every month by the 15th the food runs out and they need to replenish; however as they depend on the individual social grants this is not possible until the next payment. Those who can provide assistance during the course of the year are very welcome. We will therefore leave the boxes for ongoing donations of foodstuff, toiletries, detergents and the like. We will arrange collection and delivery mid-month when these perishables are needed the most.

Thank you.
