Brothers endeavour to help save water

2017-04-13 06:02

Two brothers from Despatch, who believe that one is never too young to inspire other people are on a mission to address the current water crisis in the Nelson Mandela Bay metropole.

Mihlali Adam, a matric learner at St George’s College, and his brother Litha, who is in Grade 10 at Grey High School, started the Adam Goodwill Ambassadors. It is an initiative which aims to promote the spirit of Ubuntu by imparting goodwill to restore dignity to the vulnerable.

The Adam Goodwill Ambassadors have been involved with many different charity projects, such as donating school shoes to needy children.

“We have been blessed with wonderful opportunities and we believe that the hand that is open to give, stays open to receive. God has blessed us and in thanking him for blessing us, we want to be a blessing unto others,” Mihlali said.

The Adam brothers point out that their work would not have been possible without the regular support from their friends at their respective schools and their father, Sandile.

Their support structure is also involved in their latest endeavour, which is to help avert the city’s water crisis.

“Executive Mayor Athol Trollip recently raised awareness about water shortages in Nelson Mandela Bay and this motivated us, the Adam Goodwill Ambassadors, to also encourage the youth to step up and be involved in helping to save water in every possible way,” explained Mihlali. (Continue on p.6 )
