On Wednesday, 13 May members of the Mpumalanga Chinese CPF (Community Police Forum) handed out 100 food parcels to families in need.
The food parcels contained mealie-meal, rice, sugar, tinned foods, potatoes, washing powder, soup powders and more. These contributions were made by Chinese owned shops in Mkhondo. Mr Daniel Chen and Mr Andy Chen represented the Chinese owned shops and handed parcels to 100 community members who were referred by the Mkhondo Local Municipality.
The gesture by the Chinese CPF is appreciated and is sure to make a big difference in households suffering a loss of income due to the lockdown.
On Wednesday, 13 May Beauty Grootboom reached out to the hungry families who reside in Driefontein.
With assistance from the TWK Vumbuka Trust team, she handed out 78 bags of 12.5 kilograms of mealie-meal. The recipients of the donation were overjoyed and appreciated the gesture. On the same day, Beauty also received a trolley full of groceries from Boxer Supermarket, to distribute amongst the impoverished residents of Driefontein.
Through this donation, the Beauty Grootboom Foundation was able to assist 20 more people. After hearing about the good deeds that Beauty does for the community, Mrs Anne- Marie Pienaar found it in her heart to also give a bakkie-load full of potatoes. Thank you to TWK Vumbuka, the management of Boxer and Mrs Pienaar for these generous gifts, your contribution to the community will go a long way.
