Charity begins at home
EVERYONE knows Jan Mabuyakhulu, Mtubatuba’s anti-rape and child abuse activist who walks across the province every year taking his message to the masses.
While Mabuyakhulu spends his days helping others and educating schoolchildren about the evils of rape and child abuse, he has no income of his own and precious little in the form of possessions.
After years of battling with a leaking room, he was able to scrounge together the bare essentials to construct a small house of his own.
But one thing he just was not able to get help with was cement for the floor, and plastering of the interior.
The Zululand Observer (ZO) made a phone call and Attie Redinger of Buildit in Richards Bay did not hesitate to help out.
He agreed to donate the six bags of cement required by Mabuyakhulu to complete his house.
These were transported by the ZO’s DICE (Do I Care Enough?) team and delivered to Mabuyakhulu at his home in Mfekayi, just north of Mtubatuba, last week.
