Kit do­na­tion makes pupils smile

The Rep - - SPORT -

THE man­age­ment and staff of Life Healthcare Pri­vate Hos­pi­tal in Queen­stown handed over soc­cer and hockey kit to Edlel­weni Pri­mary School as part of a com­mu­nity in­volve­ment pro­ject, Sizanani, in­volv­ing Life Healthcare hos­pi­tals in the Bor­der-Kei re­gion.

Schools in com­mu­ni­ties in the area served by the hospi- tals are ‘adopted’ by the hos­pi­tals’ com­mu­nity-in­volve­ment com­mit­tees and funds are used to buy items needed for fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion. This year, Life Healthcare has in­vested R105 000 in seven schools in the re­gion. “We be­lieve in giv­ing back to the com­mu­ni­ties we serve – es­pe­cially where chil­dren are ben­e­fit­ing on an on­go­ing ba­sis, said hos­pi­tal man­ager Hen­drik Swartz. “Our staff work hard to raise funds to add to the school spon­sor­ship and to make it mean­ing­ful for the learn­ers.” In 2013, the pro­ject do­nated mu­si­cal in­stru­ments to Edlel­weni.

Prin­ci­pal Zuk­isani Sondlo and the SGB thanked Life Healthcare for their in­volve­ment in the school.
