Religious order donates to babies

2015-08-20 06:00

Lady luck smiled on a large group of babies when their parents were presented with clothing and foodstuff in Site C last Sunday.

The donation was made possible by the Holy Order of Shetaut Neter as part of their celebration of national Women’s Day.

They were supported by the Nonqubela Link Mall’s Ackermans store and Settlers High School.

Sebai Em Neter, regarded as spiritual teacher of God, and a leader of the Holy Order of Shetaut Neter Sacred Divinity, said the event was held in recognition of the women of South Africa who “showed us what to do when the government misleads and enslaves its patriotic citizens.”

Zizipho Mbingeleli, 21, the mother of Sive Lizwi, 2, was so happy for the donation.

“I am so glad. I always go there when they call us, because I know that I would surely get something.

The grant for my child is not enough to cover food and clothes, so the donation will really make a huge difference in my life. I want to thank the donors,” she said.

Mbingeleli is unemployed.

Vuyiswa Diketso, 40, the mother of Sanelisiwe Diketso, 1, praised the donors.

“I feel very happy for receiving the donation. I wish to thank them a lot. I am unemployed and it is very hard for me to buy everything for my six children,”

Neter said he was happy that the event was successful and also thanked Nonqubela Link Mall Ackermans store and Settlers High School for their support.

“The main focus of this celebration was to make impoverished babies happy, knowing that when we make the poor babies happy their mothers automatically become happy.

But we realized that the babies are not only ones suffering, but their mothers on the other hand needed a special attention in terms of our support,” Neter said.

Neter also thanked all volunteers of The Holy Order of Shetaut Neter for unceasing impetus and momentum even when things seem impossible and also thanked the City of Cape Town for providing the venue for this noble event

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
