BOHLOKONG. – The Masibonisaneni Sonke Project, in partnership with, Good News Centre, a church in Bohlokong near Bethlehem, have celebrated Youth Day (16/06) in style by donating food parcels and clothes to the Mphuthi family.

The donation was presented to the family on Thursday (16/06) in their home in the Loso section of Bohlokong.

Masabata Mphuthi said she had not expected the donation and added that her life had changed. “I want to thank the church and organisation for what they have done for my family,” she said.

Mphuthi said the donated items would help them a lot until the next pay day. She said she lived with five family members who had been unemployed. “We had been depending on two old-age grants, but at least it has helped,” said the happy Mphuthi.

Thato Nhlapo, the chairperson of the Good News Centre, said as the youth of the church they had seen it as relevant to celebrate, 16 June to change other people’s lives by donating food parcels and clothes.

“We wanted to be remembered by doing something. We are happy that Charlie (Tshidiso Charlie, the project manager) had assisted us to have made this possible. We are going to do more things like this to help our communities. We are the children of God and we know that God doesn’t want to see his people suffering, hence we came to donate,” Hlapo said.

Charlie said he was happy to offer a helping hand to one of the families in Bohlokong. He said they had given their word that they would like to reach everyone in the Thabo Mofutsanyana district and this had been an example.

“Our aim is to fight poverty in the Free State and we are excited to partner with churches. We hope to do this again, since we have established a partnership.”
