The St Thomas Methodist Church Women’s Prayer and Fellowship in Bloemfontein, commonly known as the Manyano, has donated learning items to the Albert Luthuli Day Care Centre. The generous donation came as a surprise to this Early Childhood Development (ECD) centre located in Bloemanda. The learning items, which include safe toys, were handed over on 19 October.

Adeline Sekhonyana, chairperson of the Fellowship, explained that the materials are important for a child’s pre-school development. She said the gesture was in line with their “Reach out for love” programme through which they reach out to various organisations and members of the community to provide support and to pray for spiritual upliftment.

“The learning items conform to the five principles, which include education. Education is the cornerstone of society, hence we donated educational items and user-friendly toys to a centre caring for children to ensure their development,” said Sekhonyana. The gifts include colouring books and pencils, all meant for the development of the children.

Sekhonyana said they had identified the Albert Luthuli Day Care Centre during the “Reach out for love” programme, which continues throughout the year.

In their prominent red, white and black uniforms, the Manyano patrons braved the hot summer day to present the learning materials to the centre. Sekhonyana said the items were bought with money collected during fundraising.

“Fundraising throughout the years has turned out to be the mainspring of putting together little efforts to supply to those in need.”

The Manyano group left a lot of young hearts at the centre and staff beaming with joy. Accepting the gesture, Mamolikeng Mosena, matron of the centre, said: “We appreciate the good deed by Manyano women. They really surprised us by donating items that we really need.”
