THE Stanger Hospital partnered with a non-profit organisation the Maximum Output (MOP) Institute in a project to aid the Masibathande Care Centre.Founder of the MOP institute Dr Mhlanga said he co-founded the organisation with his wife with the intention of developing and raising young people to become future leaders who would redress socio-economic issues in South Africa.“The organisation seeks to achieve its goal by hosting leadership seminars, motivational talks and career guidance sessions for young people,” he said.He said Masibathande Care Centre is a non-profit organisation that was established by Ms Nzungane in 2011 which cares for children with disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy and Down syndrome.“Some of the children were unfortunately abandoned by their teenage parents because they could not care for them. Some of the children have been willingly placed by their parents who need assistance with caring for them. Ms Nzungane, moved by compassion for these children, opened the doors of her own home in order to care for these children,” said Mhlanga.He said Nzungane funds the care centre out of her own pocket and through the assistance she receives from Stanger Hospital social workers who ensure that the children have social grants.“Even with this assistance she still struggles to feed and meet the needs of these children and her house is starting to fall apart. That is why the Maximum out Put Institute partnered with Stanger Hospital to embark on an outreach project to assist this centre,” said Mhlanga.He said the aim of the partnership was to paint the interior of the four bedroomed house, repair facilities and donate food and clothes.“Christmas came early for the centre, they also received R14 000.00 and the food and clothing that was donated was valued at R8000.00. It was all donated by the Stanger Hospital’s staff members and the Maximum Output Institute,” he said.
