NPO receives cash boost

2018-07-20 06:00

AN amount of R 15 000 was given to the non-profit organisation, Rural Empowerment Agrarian Pillars (Reap) Foundation, based in Umzimkhulu, at an event held at the Ibisi Hall on July 5. The money was donated by Old Mutual as part of their bid to support rural communities.

Reap Foundation chairperson David Sethuntsa said the money would be used to buy much-needed computers and printers.

Established in 2015 by a group of retired teachers, nurses, and police, Reap aims to assist vulnerable members of society who live in rural villages.

“We offer extensive care to elderly people, and collect money and buy uniforms for poor children. We want to change the lives of many people,” said Sethuntsa.

On May 9, the foundation donated school uniforms to Sizakancane Primary School pupils from Umzimkhulu.

“We are thankful for the support of stakeholders, including Umzimkhulu Municipality that gave us offices at Ibisi Hall to help poor people,” added Sethuntsa.
