THANKS to the help of good Samaritans, Mama Ntombi Community Projects (MNCP) recently received a crop of cabbages which could be given to needy community members they serve.

According to Sandra Pillay of MNCP, the organisation received a call from a woman called Nancy Naidoo, who offered them the cabbages.

“Naidoo called me to tell me that she was given 50 cabbage seedlings. She then promised that she would give away the crop when they were ready,” said Pillay, who added that Naidoo recently called her to collect the cabbages to give to the poor people that the organisation serves in Copesville.

Pillay expressed how January is a difficult month for most people, but more especially for the many families at Ezinketheni.

“They all love cabbage, which goes well with phutu. For this gesture, we are grateful. We are sure the people will appreciate this,” said Pillay.

Naidoo explained that the cabbage seedlings were given to her last year by Peter Green.

“The drought was really bad, but I took a chance and planted about 50 of them. Lovingly, I watered them for about three months.

“When the rains came, my daughter Cassandra and I were pleasantly surprised to see how beautifully they had grown,” said Naidoo, who added that she and her daughter then made inquiries about who could use the cabbages.

“We found Sandra Pillay through Fiona and Mairi Matheson. We harvested 50 cabbages and we were very pleased since it was our first attempt at planting. We plan to continue because it is in blessing others that you are blessed,” said Naidoo.
