SIX public relations students from Nelson Mandela University held a fundraising exhibition in aid on Zanethemba Charity Foundation on October 11.The event forms part of a third-year project the students are doing. Zanethemba Charity Foundation has been implementing programmes aimed at the safety and well-being of vulnerable children and youth in underserved areas of Port Elizabeth since 2008.Zanethemba runs a temporary safe care facility in Walmer for 12 abused, abandoned and neglected children, from newborn to six years old. The children are removed from their families by a social worker and placed in Zanethemba’s care. Once the external social worker has investigated the children’s circumstances, the children will either return to their parents, be placed in foster care, be adopted or be placed in a children’s home. The six students running the exhibition were Silke Botha, Kayla Minnie, Isabella Kruger, Lilitha Bolani, Daryl Moore and Athule Mpandle.According to Botha, the exhibition opening hosted on October 11 was a huge success.“The amount raised was well over the estimated amount and the turnout was more than expected. Money was raised by asking a R20 entrance fee and selling raffle tickets for R20. East Coast Kustoms also kindly donated R2 000 to Zanethemba on the night,” she said. The exhibition opening featured local artists, beauticians, musicians, dancers and much more. Anyone interested in giving Zanethemba Charity Foundation a helping hand or donations can visit them at 21 Albert Road in Walmer or go to www.zanethemba.org.
