Ubuntu Community Development Solutions hosted one of its Child Clean-up projects on Mandela Day.

“We served 37 children with a hot water shower, new clothes and food. It being school holidays and with various other projects being held on the day, many children did not come into town. The weather was also cold and rainy, which kept many indoors or hidden away,” said Angelique Nell from Ubuntu Community Development Solutions.

The project was blessed with various donations from the community as well as local businesses. SASBO The Finance Union donated R12 500 worth of kitchen equipment and clothing to the project.

First National Bank staff brought bags of groceries and clothing for the children and Woolworths Uitenhage also brought many sets of clothes to children of various ages.

“We would like to thank the staff of these institutions for their time and donations to this project. It has assisted them tremendously,” said Nell
