LEEUWFONTEIN – The Open Hearts Open Hands Charity organization handed over a complete house to the destitute Kgwete family in Leeuwfontein outside Marble Hall on Saturday, 20 February 2021 as part of its programme to reach out and support communities in need.
Open Hearts Open Hands is a non-profit organization which seeks to serve communities through addressing felt needs.
The organization strives to achieve its mission at the background of communities suffering poverty, substance abuse and violence and the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, which worsened the situation.
According to the organization, it has heightened its efforts of giving food parcels, clothing and shelter as well as moral and professional support to the affected families.
On Saturday, in collaboration with the People Matter Foundation and other donors from businesses to individuals, they handed over a house to the needy Kgwete family in rural Leeuwfontein outside Marble Hall within the Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality.
The house is the second one in so many months following the one handed over to the Mampruru family in Tafelkop outside Groblersdal with the Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality whom their shack was gutted by fire recently in which incident an elderly lady died.
The organization said that it was aggrieved that the Mampuru family still had not found closure after the elderly’s body was yet to be released by forensics for burial.
The Kgwete family expressed their gratitude for the new house donated to them and encouraged the organization to continue helping the needy to change the live of the impoverished.
