The Gift of the Givers held yet another community initiative at the Marburg Recovery Centre last Saturday where the community was treated to something special.

Members of the organisation treated the elderly and disabled members of the community to a hot meal and special gifts.

“We had hot meals sponsored by Ravi Lautan and hygiene packs and blankets sponsored by The Gift of the givers Team and Lighthouse Community.

The turnout was good despite the inclement weather conditions.

“The elderly were overjoyed to be a part of this initiative as this was the first time that they were treated with special gifts, they were extremely delighted to have been finally remembered,” said organisation events co-ordinator, Imraan Mahomed.

“Our aim is to uplift the underprivileged Ugu district community,” said Mahomed.
