Thina Sidumisa Uyesu Ministries in Kuyasa made sure to keep children entertained and occupied during the school holiday.

The focus was safety for the church, based in Khayelitsha.

Pastor Mphuthumi Fudumele said the programme was aimed at ensuring that children were safe during the holidays.

“We do not want children to wander around the streets, exposed to the dangers of rape.

We taught them about their rights. We also hosted a talent search aspect in the programme.

Our wish is to get assistance from businesses so that we can run it through-out the school holidays. The church has been involved in this programme for the past three years now,” Fudumele said.

Fudumele said the programme, which lasted for the whole of last week saw over 70 children attending every a day.

The children spend the days doing different activities such as poetry, traditional dance, music and speeches.

Last Friday, they also marched on the streets raising safety awareness.

The programme was done in partnership with the department of Community Safety.

Nolungile Charles, one of the children who attended, said the programme was good.

“It was nice all the time. We managed to get all the answers on issue that we wanted to know about. We do not always have things to do for entertainment here so this programme closed that gap. It was exciting,” Charles said.

Olwethu Fudumele, one of the children, also applauded the church for organising the event and said it nice.
