Fun day for orphans

2015-05-05 06:00

A Mitchell’s Plain organisation has ­embodied the spirit of giving by hosting a fun day for orphans in the area.

Mitchell’s Plain In Arms (MIA) held the event for more than 300 children at the Westridge Gardens on Saturday 28 March.

A range of activities included a jumping castle, trampoline, soccer games, face painting and an Easter egg hunt.

The organisation is not government-funded and are calling on volunteers and donors to get involved in its charity work. MIA was established last year to help the vulnerable and needy in the area.

The organisation’s personnel are motivated to address the issue of survival in the community. With the help of market research and daily work with the community they have also seen the necessity of their work.

The organisation would like to thank all the sponsors, donors, community members, orphans and team members who made the fun day possible.
