Eyethu Baywatch - - NEWS • IZINDABA - Conelia Harry

RICHARDS Bay’s lo­cal char­ity Walk in Faith is work­ing on its next project and is col­lect­ing sta­tionery for chil­dren in need.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s an­nual uni­form and sta­tionery col­lec­tion drive is in full swing, with 203 young­sters ur­gently re­quir­ing school sup­plies for the be­gin­ning of the new term.

Ac­cord­ing to char­ity founder Merinda Ack­er­man, sup­plies have been col­lected for 37 chil­dren and they are ap­peal­ing to the com­mu­nity to as­sist with the out­stand­ing items such as sta­tionery, school bags, lunch boxes and uni­forms.

‘We also fa­cil­i­tate a lunch feed­ing scheme for 34 chil­dren and pro­vide sand­wiches at two schools on a Tues­day and Wednes­day.

‘We are heav­ily re­liant on dona­tions and spon­sors to con­tinue our work and for­ever grate­ful for the com­mu­nity’s sup­port in help­ing us to meet the needs of those who have fallen on tough times,’ said Ack­er­man.

For col­lec­tions or drop off in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Merinda on 081 5382331.
