HUNDREDS of strug­gling fam­i­lies were sup­ported by the City of uMh­lathuze, which pro­vided them with Christ­mas gro­ceries.

The iden­ti­fied res­i­dents were head­ing for a bleak Christ­mas as they had noth­ing to cook for their fam­i­lies on Christ­mas day.

Most of the ben­e­fi­cia­ries were se­nior cit­i­zens who sup­port grand­chil­dren and child-headed house­holds.

The gro­ceries were handed to the ben­e­fi­cia­ries by Deputy Mayor Slondile Mkhize at the Em­pan­geni Civic Cen­tre, and were ob­tained through do­na­tions from pri­vate com­pa­nies

One of the ben­e­fi­cia­ries, Girl Nzuza (84) of Ng­welezana Town­ship, sup­ports 13 fam­ily mem­bers with her pen­sion grant.

‘We were head­ing for a dis­as­trous Christ­mas. I thank the City of uMh­lathuze for this life-sav­ing gift,’ she said.
