HARRISMITH. – After successfully helping needy communities throughout the year, the Masbonisaneni Sonke Project, a non-profit organisation (NPO) from Tshiame near Harrismith, thanked the sponsors who supported the project throughout the year.

Representatives from all the sponsors were recently invited to a breakfast at the Classic Country in Harrismith where they were awarded with certificates of ­appreciation.

According to the project manager, Collen Charlie, they wanted to thank all people who played a role in ensuring that their dream of helping the community was realised. He said the meeting was also held to do planning for next year.

“We would not have managed to help anyone without the support of the businesspeople. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I wish God will give them strength so that they would become stronger next year,” he said.

The Masbonisaneni Sonke Project was launched in 2010 and has since changed the lives of many people, especially in Tshiame and Makgolokoeng. Charlie said he was moved to initiate the project after becoming aware of how many people sometimes went to bed with an empty stomach. He said they helped these families with blankets, clothes and food parcels.

“Our aim is to reach more people in the Thabo Mofutsanyana district. We are hoping to get more sponsors in the future so that we could reach more people. We know that it would not be possible to reach all of them, but we would be glad to help,” Charlie said.

He said the breakfast marked the official closing of 2015 for them. “It is now time to rest as we plan for the year ahead. We will, however, keep our phone lines open, because we know that some people might need our help as we approach Christmas time.”
