Donate sanitary pads and make a change

2018-11-07 06:00

A NON-profit organisation called God Created Families Before The Church is looking for donations of sanitary pads to be given to needy girls and women around Pietermaritzburg.

The organisation was founded by Pastor Sabelo Zungu and Mlungisi Ndlovu.

It hosted a women’s forum on Saturday, aimed at collecting as many sanitary pads for donation as possible and also to teach women about depression under the forum topic: “Depression is real”.

Nonhlanhla Hlongwa, who is the chairperson of the women’s forum within the organisation, told Echo that the event was part of their outreach programme which they conduct every year.

“Last year we did the same programme and we donated sanitary pads to girls in Elandskop.

“This year we had a target of collecting at least 500 packs of sanitary pads but we are currently sitting on 300 that we managed to collect during the forum. This year we want to do something different because we will focus on areas that are neglected, like Jika Joe and Masukwana informal settlements.

“We are very positive about this drive but, in order to make it successful, we are relying on our community members to please assist us by donating,” she said.

Hlongwa further said that, for this drive, they are working with Youth of Christ.

“This organisation is for the community, so it makes it our job to help the community where we can. There are people out there who really need help and we will do our very best in making sure that we use this organisation to reach to them”, Hlongwa said.

If you would like to donate, contact Nonhlanhla Hlongwa at 081 599 1084.
