Non-profit organisation changes villagers’ lives for the better


Driven by the passion to give back to the communities, Bogwasha Disaster Management Foundation, a non-profit organisation continued to donate to the needy.

The members of the foundation recently donated food parcels to more than 500 families in Tubatse and surroundings. Most of the recipients were from Ga Motodi village.

Villagers queued with their wheelbarrows in anticipation, waiting for their names to be called. They received basic food items such as maize meal, rice, sugar, potatoes, cake flour, cooking oil and many more.

Chairperson of the foundation Samuel Moraba told Sekhukhune Times that they aimed at assisting the needy during the tough times.

“We had been donating to the poor since around 2013, it is vital that we continue with this good initiative as most people lost their jobs during the lockdown. I am happy that as a foundation we brought smiles to locals in Tubatse. Most families thanked us, as they had a perfect festive season.”

The Bogwasha Disaster Management Foundation also cares about education and the well-being of pupils. “In the past years, we donated sanitary towels to the learners at local schools in Ga Motodi.”

Moraba said they wanted to restore the dignity of the girls.  According to Moraba, over 600 pupils benefitted from the donations.

”We are looking forward to assist the schools in future, not only with sanitary pads but with leadership and vocational skills.”

The Bogwasha Disaster Management Foundation was established by locals from Ga-motodi Village, with the sole purpose of promoting social cohesion through a number of programmes.
