T-con­nex­ion comes to or­phans’ aid

Lesotho Times - - News - Lim­pho Sello

TOURISM and mar­ket­ing com­pany, T-con­nex­ion re­cently donated 20 pairs of schools shoes to 20 or­phans and vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren (OVC) in Leribe.

T-con­nex­ion Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Thabo Maret­lane this week told the Le­sotho Times that they had iden­ti­fied the OVCS who needed as­sis­tance to­wards the end of last month af­ter con­sult­ing teach­ers and coun­cil­lors in the district.

Mr Maret­lane said they opted to do­nate shoes af­ter real­is­ing some of the chil­dren could not af­ford school shoes while some went to school in torn shoes.

“This year we donated pairs of shoes to OVCS at two schools in Leribe, namely Vil­lacruks and Mmate Pri­mary Schools as part of our so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gramme,” Mr Maret­lane said, adding, “The chil­dren have no one to turn to and we be­lieve it is right that we help those in need where we can”.

For her part, Ha-mmate com­mu­nity coun­cilor Ms Mathapelo Lotho com­mended the com­pany for their gen­eros­ity in as­sist­ing less priv­i­leged mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

“We are re­ally grate­ful for their sup­port be­cause not many peo­ple are gen­er­ous enough to help OVCS in the area,” Ms Lotho said.

She also ap­pealed to Ba­sotho to “al­ways re­mem­ber that in our com­mu­ni­ties we have peo­ple and chil­dren who are vul­ner­a­ble and their dona­tions would cer­tainly go a long way in im­prov­ing lives”.
