“IT breaks my heart to see a child go to school with a torn school uniform and worn-out school shoes,” said Enhlanhleni Isibani Sezwe NGO supervisor Ntokozo Ngobese.
The organisation has started a school uniform drive where they collect school uniforms, shoes and bags for disadvantaged children in KwaDabeka and Clermont.
“At the moment we have identified 80 children who are in need of uniforms and shoes and most are registered under our organisation. These children come from a poor background and some are orphaned.

“We also started a medical treatment campaign with the KwaDabeka Clinic in December last year. When the clinic saw that a lot of people collected their medication from the clinic they asked if some of them could collect their TB and HIV medication from our offices.
“We have a soup kitchen on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1pm to 3pm.

Enhlanhleni Isibani Sezwe recently held an awareness campaign at the KK Hall, attended by eThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede, KwaDabeka Clinic members, Councillor Bheki Mvubu, SAPS members, non-profit-organisations and private companies.
“The purpose of the campaign was to address issues about drugs, HIV/Aids, women and child abuse. During the campaign we held talks on drugs, abuse and more on HIV/Aids because most of the children we assist are infected or affected by HIV/Aids.
“Most children are on antiretroviral treatment and most of don’t know what the treatment is for and why they taking it. “We also held a candlelight session for those who have died of Aids and we reintroduced ourselves to the community.” For more information contact 082 666 0876.
