School shoes and groceries for Nadi-Drop-in Centre for the vulnerable

MOTETEMA– Beneficiaries at the Nadi-Drop-in Centre in Motetema outside Groblersdal were treated to school shoes and groceries, thanks to Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor, Stan Ramaila.

According to Ramaila the donation of groceries and school shoes to the needy at the centre came after the previous visit there when the need arose.

“We promised them after our first visit that we will come back to them and offer help with some of the things that challenged them on daily basis. This is the first step towards helping people in need in the district. We are working hard to ensure that other centres such as this one receive help in whichever way we can,” said Ramaila.

Nadi Drop-in Centre which is a place for 120 children aged between five and 18 years of age and is temporarily housed in a church until such time when a proper structure has been erected.

The centre is in the custodianship of the Department of Social Development with six volunteers currently responsible for its smooth running.

Children at the centre receive food, donated by various businesses, on a daily basis at the centre registered with the Department of Social Development but yet not receiving any funding for its sustenance.

Hunadi Mpanyane, Nadi-Drop-in Centre Head, expressed gratitude for the district municipality’s effort to ensure the wellbeing of the beneficiaries of the centre.

Mpanyane said they were challenged by lack of funding at the centre and they were forced to run it from their own pockets to help the destitute and orphans children.

“We really appreciate what the district municipality is doing to help us as a centre and we hope the business community will follow suit and provide a helping hand to better the lives of people,” concluded Mpanyane.

The district municipality promised it would revisit the centre after the realization that children there also needed school uniform for the 2019 academic year.
