Sport and music stars in benefit for orphaned children

2014-10-16 00:00

SOUTH African musicians and sporting personalities attended a breakfast for the LIV Village at the Oyster Box hotel yesterday.

The Lungisisa Indlela Village (LIV), located in Cottonlands on the North Coast, was launched in 2010 to help take care of orphaned and abandoned children.

John Smit, David Miller, Pat Lambie, Tendai Mtawarira, Marsha Marescia Cox, Grant Baker, Jannie and Bismarck du Plessis, Bridgette Hartley, Lehlohonolo Majoro, Shaun Pollock and musicians Gangs of Ballet attended.

LIV also launched a national publicity and television campaign that aims to bring attention to “the preservation and dignity of our future heritage — our children the leaders of tomorrow”.

LIV works with the government, the business community and the churches to provide residential care for thousands of orphaned children, with a vision to “rescue a child, restore a life, raise a leader, and release a star”.

Cricketer Shaun Pollock said his parents were hugely influential in equipping him to reach his goals.

“I believe all kids should have a helping hand to guide them along life’s path, and that is why I have partnered with LIV.

“I have great confidence in LIV’s ability to influence a generation through caring for the needs of orphaned children,” he said.
