Hindu or­gan­i­sa­tion a big sup­porter of com­mu­nity events in Richards Bay

Eyethu Baywatch - - LETTERS • IZINCWADI -

AS a Richards Bay res­i­dent who en­joys par­tic­i­pat­ing in com­mu­nity aware­ness and up­lift­ment events, it is ad­mirable to see how many of our lo­cal com­mu­nity groups also of­fer their sup­port.

One in par­tic­u­lar is the Umh­lathuze Hindu De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee (UHDC), a vi­brant group which al­ways goes the ex­tra mile in their own out­reach ini­tia­tives, as well as in sup­port­ing other events.

This month I spot­ted them at the Bay Watch SANCA Walk Away from Drugs event and their own per­sonal beach clean-up cam­paign on International Coastal Clean-up Day last week­end.

They host their own out­reach events and com­mu­nity projects such as wellness days, feed­ing schemes, food par­cel drives, women’s day of prayer, events hon­our­ing the se­nior cit­i­zens and their Deep­avali light up a life chil­dren’s project.

I com­mend the or­gan­i­sa­tion for their con­tri­bu­tions and self­less ser­vice to our com­mu­nity and mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in the lives of many.
