Gift of the Givers help for Marikana

2012-09-08 00:00

THE Gift of the Givers is putting together a package of food supplies, high energy supplements and blankets to be delivered to families of the Lonmin miners to show support.

The founder of the Gift of the Givers, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, said: “It is our fervent hope that on receiving these supplies some of the hurt and anger will subside to allow a more conducive environment for a just and fair negotiation that will culminate in an equitable distribution of income in keeping with the high-risk duties performed by these individuals, who are human after all.”

Sooliman said they are not political commentators nor aligned politically but are taking a humanitarian approach.

“In this time-bomb of heated opinions, of right and wrong, of huge discrepancies in wages, the reality is that miners and their families are suffering,” he added.

The Gift of the Givers said those wanting to support this campaign can deposit into the Gift of the Givers, Standard Bank, account number: 052 137 228, branch code: 057 525.
