Four families in Kgautswana village were
anticipating a bleak Christmas before a local NPO intervened and donated new
clothes to them.
Dube Foundation handed clothes and toys to the Chego and Mgiba families this past festive season. Fidel Dube, founder of the organisation, said they always aim to do good for the needy.
“When were discovered that some of the kids did not have clothes for Christmas and New Year, we decided to take from our own pockets and assist. In other instances, there were Good Samaritans that assisted us. We do this for the love of the children. Not only have we assisted families in Kgautswana and Tubatse, we also bought clothes for another family residing in Mashishing”
In one of the families, the foundation also bought the children’s school uniforms.
“We started with the donations of school covers
in December. Previously we handed laptops and stationery to our local schools.”
According to Dube, pupils from impoverished backgrounds are often compelled to drop out of school due to challenges they experience. “The Dube foundation aims to lessen their power of want and support them throughout their academic period with necessities such as uniforms, laptops and other valuable items which will assist them in accessing quality education designed to change their fortunes in the long run,” added the founder of the NPO.
He said that they currently have two wheelchairs and they wish to donate to the disabled. Those interested in the wheelchairs can contact the foundation on 072-682-7116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
