FEEDY Needy spread festive cheer among the children at Osindesweni Hospital with meals and treats recently.

The visit was among several the organisation did to spread happiness among sick children who have been in hospital rather than at home with their families.

Spokesperson Reena Rampersad said they wanted to show children at these hospitals that they are loved and to give them a surprise.

"Some of these children live far from the hospitals like Osindesweni so it's not possible for their parents to visit them every day," said Rampersad.

"We wanted to cheer the children up because they couldn't be at home with their families having fun and playing games."

Some parents were also present and were also given KFC meals with the children.

"It was amazing to see how happy and excited the children were to get the meals and treats. We are happy to have brought some festive joy to their little hearts during the holidays," said Rampersad.

Feedy Needy have thanked all their sponsors who helped make the various hospital visits possible.

Some of the hospitals included Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Hospital, King George Hospital, RK Khans, Albert Luthuli Hospital, Clairwood and various children's homes around Durban.

"We are grateful to everyone who helped make this campaign possible as you have brought smiles on the faces of ill children," said Rampersad.
