Ntwane Community Development Forum reaches out to the needy

DENNILTON – About 60 needy families at Ntwane, Marapong, Thabakhubedu and neighbouring villages in Dennilton outside Groblersdal recently received food parcels from Ntwane Community Development Forum (NCDF).

NCDF, a community based organization with the purpose of uplifting communities through development and empowerment, raised funds and sought donations to purchase and distribute the food parcels to the destitute families in the area amid the COVID-19 lockdown challenges.

Noto Madisa, NCDF Chairperson, said nothing like that had ever been seen in their community and that it was historical and very heartwarming.

Madisa thanked everyone involved and said people could learn humanity and generosity through the initiative.

Mangweng Mathabathe, NCDF Spokesperson, said in addition, as a structure indebted to the community, they would continue to encourage those who wanted to be part of “this awakening period to come on board and drink from the same well with us.”

NCDF expressed gratitude to selfless community members who came out to support the initiative through offering transport, their hands and time to help distribute the parcels.

The organization concluded that as part of the broader struggle to fully equip the community in the fight against the scourge of COVID-19 pandemic, it was in talks with the Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) and the Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation to provide water to the communities.

The distribution of the food parcels formed part of the NCDF’s awareness campaign to encourage communities to observe and fully comply with COVID-19 lockdown regulations aimed at minimizing the spread of the dreaded pandemic.

The local transport department, Dennilton SAPS, community safety and health departments partook in the programme with Moshate wa BaNtwane also forming part of the cohort.
