Good Samaritans open their hearts to the needy amid COVID-19 lockdown

KGOBOKWANE – The needy in Kgobokwane Village outside Marble Hall continue to receive food packages amid the national lockdown, thanks to the Good Samaritan in Matete Mampana, a resident in the area.

Mampana and a team of other loving and caring residents initiated the project to seek food donations from a variety of businesses in the area to help those in need during the COVID-19 lockdown.

According to Mampana the idea was conceived following the realization that many people in the area went to bed without food since the inception of the lockdown in March this year.

“We became aware that food parcels meant for the needy were not easily accessed by those who needed them most and we thought of ways in which we can assist. We seek donations from businesses and the farming community around the area. The response has been satisfactory thus far but we still encourage others to join in and lend a helping hand because people are going through tough times,” said Mampana.

Seun Mogotji, Bolsheviks Party of South Africa leader, expressed gratitude for farmers in Marble Hall for their donation of food to help the residents during the COVID-19 pandemic following engagements with some of the members of the community.

Mogotji said the group took an initiative to seek assistance for the most in need that were unable to make means to get food during the country’s lockdown.

“It is the efforts of the committee and the farmers that families receive assistance. The support of the farmers to the community should not go unrecognized and such good acts must not be disrespected,” said Mogotji.

Mogotji called on community structures that are dedicated to serving the interest of the poor to engage businesses, farmers and everyone who may be of help in assisting those who are without food “as food aid that is said to come from government is not yet received by many deserving communities.”
