“THE Pinetown Fever has been a blessing to us,” said Pastor Alfred Ntshangase, a founder of a non-profit organisation, Enhlanhleni Isibani Sezwe in KwaDabeka. This comes after it received donations from various organisations.
“Firstly I would like to thank the Pinetown Fever for writing a story about the organisation looking for donations. The response has been tremendous. We received food parcels from organisations and have been blessed by people who donated to us after reading the Pinetown Fever.

“Not only did the newspaper assist us with getting organisations to donate, it also helped one of our orphans, Thandeka Mkhize, to have an operation after struggling with a tumour for years.
“We were excited when we read about Thandeka's story in the newspaper, who received help about a month after the story was published. She was called in by the hospital and was re-examined and the tumour was removed. She is well and fit and her life has changed ever since.”

“I thank the Pinetown Fever and everyone who helped me to get my tumour removed. I felt awful and depressed with it. I used to hide in my house for days - now I am confident about my body,” she said.

Ntshangase said the organisation recently initiated an HIV/Aids programme where they conducted classes to teach their orphans about the disease.
“In the programme we taught the children about HIV/Aids and why it is important take their treatment every day as instructed by the clinic.
“Some of the children were not aware of the disease and why they had to take treatment because some family members and parents are too scared to talk about it with their children.
“It is our job as an organisation to make sure these children are healthy at all times. We would like to thank the sponsors - Mutala, an Islamic organisation in Wyebank, a family in Hillcrest and an organisation called Focus.”

The organisation’s plan for this year is to donate school uniforms.
“We have about 198 children on our database who don't have school uniforms so we plan to help those children.
“I believe that everyone deserves the right to education and I always say that education is the key to success.”
