Help us beat the winter blues

2016-05-26 06:00

As winter is already approaching I’m thinking of those who are in need. When I am wrapped warmly under my blankets in this chilly weather, I always think of those feeling cold under the bridges and even those under shelters with no blankets or food. I’m pleading to business people to reach out to those in need. I think soup kitchens are the best, but the problem is, there are few of them in our communities and they cannot accommodate the numbers of needy people as the numbers are escalating. Donating warm clothes to them would make a big difference. Let’s help each other my fellow South Africans. This country still needs to work hard on the spirit of Ubuntu.
