THE UMVOTI Aids Centre is delighted to have been enabled to extend our soup kitchen from Mondays to Thursday to include Fridays, thanks to the generosity of Suhaifa Mohamed Kharodia, who provides groceries for our new “Meat Fridays” for 100 children. Mohamed Kharodia is the executive director of Mannatech KZN, whose team is currently working passionately to bring us Mannatech’s amazing PhytoBlend that we, at Umvoti Aids Centre, will be the very first to have in KwaZulu-Natal. Young children need to develop healthy eating and physical activity habits early on, as nutrition is paramount to a child’s physical and mental development. PhytoBlend powder is designed to bolster the nutritious value of the food that children need. The centre is grateful for the support and kindness of Kharodia and her team. We are hoping that this exciting opportunity will be implemented early next year. — Supplied.
