GROWING up, the Moonsamy bothers always had a passion for giving back to the community, and in December last year they organised a fun day at their family owned business, Mamarazzi Pizza in Hillcrest, for the children of Vumelani Orphan and Day Care Centre.

The children were treated to jumping castles and freshly baked pizzas. The brothers Abednego, Jonathan and Roland, who took over the business two years ago, said that it has always been a dream of theirs to treat underprivileged children in the community.

“Seeing how ecstatic the children were while playing gave us the inspiration to do this on a monthly basis.

“We want to give the children joy and create happiness all around us,” said Roland.

“It was so surprising because some of the children had never tasted pizza before and never had a fun day playing on a jumping castle,” added Abednego.

“We are not expecting anything in return, we just want to see the children happy,” he said.

Commencing at the end of February, the brothers want to extend this helping hand to the entire Hillcrest community.

They want to offer the fun day, and also be able to offer clothes, non-perishable goods and assist where needed. The brothers are calling upon other businesses to get involved and donate towards this cause.

“I’m trying to make people aware that we are not all privileged and it’s not the children’s fault that they are orphans, which is why I’m asking for anyone to come forward and lend a helping hand.

“I’m also looking for sponsors who can help because there’s a lot that needs to be done and there’s not many of us. One can assist by donating clothes, canned goods and even money, as all help we get will be beneficial to the cause,” said Jonathan.

He said that they did research and found nine orphanages to assist. “If there are more homes, please can they contact us here at Mamarazzi so we can add them to our list,” he said.

Anyone willing to donate, or wanting more information, can phone 031 765 6262.
