AN eight-year-old girl from Ibisi village is to celebrate Christmas like other children after a Good Samaritan, Mpucuko­ Mncwabe, who owns a funeral parlour and security company in Umzimkhulu, donated clothes to the child last Friday.

The girl’s father, Mthandeni Kuka, has TB and is unemployed.

He phoned into Umhlobo Wenene FM and asked people to help him get out of poverty.

In October, Mncwabe visited the family after being touched by the story of Kuka and was shocked to see the family had no food.

The family asked Mncwabe to get Christmas clothes for the young girl and he bought shoes, dresses and toys.

“The family depends on the child support grant of the eight-year-old girl and they live in extreme poverty and I like giving to the poor,” said Mncwabe. Mncwabe was accompanied by members of Manqoba Mnqithi Foundation at the handover of the donation.
