MASEVEN – Fulfilling on his promise to adopt a destitute family in Maseven village, Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor (SDM), Stanley Ramaila, donated furniture, blankets and groceries to the kin on Friday.
This after the Executive Mayor last month handed over a four roomed house to the family which had been living in abject poverty for years.
During the house handover last month, Ramaila pledged to adopt the family and ensured the newly built house would be furnished before the end of last month.
Ramaila was accompanied by SDM Executive Committee members and Speaker Maria Manamela as well as the district municipality officials.
The furniture comprised sofas, a kitchen unit, a TV stand, beds, a wardrobe and the blankets were 14 in number.
The Executive Mayor further promised to work hard to extend the current Mogola house to ensure that all members were accommodated in comfort.
Ramaila encouraged members of the community to always have a heart to help the needy in their respective communities in whichever way they could.
“We further encourage the children to make sure they equip themselves with education so that they can be able to better their future. We will be visiting the family on a frequent basis and see how they are progressing,” added Ramaila.
Philemon Mogola, family member, thanked the district municipality for the help they brought to the family and encouraged the executive mayor to also reach other to other needy people.
Mariam Kobo, neighbour, said the family was struggling and the district municipality’s efforts brought hope to them.
