Char­ity be­gins at home

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

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.
