Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

RICHARDS Bay Fam­ily Care (RBFC) can reach out fur­ther to the com­mu­nity’s vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren af­ter a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from the Richards Bay Tem­ple So­ci­ety un­der the ban­ner of its Lord Shiva Ham­pers of Hope project.

Chil­dren’s cloth­ing, as well as kitchen uten­sils and gro­ceries were re­cently do­nated to the cash-strapped NPO whose man­date it is to pro­vide sup­port for the most vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren in so­ci­ety.

‘Richards Bay Tem­ple So­ci­ety has run this project for many years and, through it, as­sisted many com­mu­ni­ties,’ said RBFC So­cial Work Su­per­vi­sor, Zakithi Mahlati.

‘This time around they opened their hearts to sup­port RBFC and we are thank­ful for their gen­eros­ity and ap­pre­ci­ate their sup­port.

‘This gen­er­ous act proved to us that, re­gard­less of our cul­tural or re­li­gious ori­en­ta­tion, we all have a heart for the vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren in our com­mu­nity.

‘We en­cour­age other re­li­gious struc­tures to join hands with RBFC in car­ing for those who are in need.’

Any­one want­ing to sup­port RBFC by do­nat­ing in the run-up to this fes­tive sea­son and beyond can con­tact the of­fice on 035 7892640 (Zakithi Mahlati) or email the trea­surer, Elvin Ven­ter, on elvin@awon. co.za.
