NEARLY 100 youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds were delighted with the gifts they received at a special event at Umvoti Aids Centre on 11 April.

Thanks to caring pupils at Hermannsburg Primary School and Ukukhanyakomvoti each child, much to its delight, received an Easter egg hamper sponsored by the two groups.

Some of the children also received school uniforms from the Department of Social Development.

A spokesperson said: “We, as Umvoti Aids Centre, are dedicated to those children who are not privileged, and are committed to helping them in any way we can. These children are our responsibility and their future lies on us. We also appeal to the community, who are willing to assist with the youngsters, to contact 082 380 3489.
