Community pleas for food parcels to donate to the disadvantaged family


The community of Ga-Masemola in Thabampshe area is pleading to any good Samaritans to donate food parcels to a destitute family.

This comes after the concerned members of the community discovered the poor living conditions of the Sefoka family.

They blamed and accused mother of nine for leaving children alone during the day without food.

But the mother said she goes out looking for employment to support her two children and other two grandchildren.

Instead of taking responsibility, she blamed her daughter, Tumi for not taking care of her children.

She blames Tumi for bringing children into the world and not being able to take care of them.

“Tumi has two children but she just leaves them for days without telling anyone were she is going or when she will be back. She forcefully left with the social grand card for her children and uses it for whatever God knows wherever she is. I reported the matter to the social workers but they didn’t attend my case,” said unemployed mother.

All of her nine children are unemployed. The saddest part is that all her children left school at primary level claiming they could hustle.

Two of her sons are believed to be drug addicts.

Due to the community’s interventions, one of the boys believed to be a drug addict was taken to Jane Furse hospital as he was showing signs of illness.

Residents said during the day, when the mother leaves to hustle, the children remain alone without anything to eat.

As a result, a nine years old child has to take the responsibility to ensure her siblings are clean and safe.

She even stopped going to school for two weeks looking after her uncle who was taken to the hospital.

Community members believe that these children are traumatised, and therefore suggest that the government intervene and take them into foster care.

Residents tried to open a case at Masemola Police station but the police advised them to engage with social workers.

Responsible social worker who works at Magalies clinic insisted that the department wasn’t aware of this matter which is contrary to the mother’s submission.

But the social worker promised to apply for food parcels for the family.
