A FEW weeks ago I was sad parent, walking around looking for Good Samaritans to save our children in Panorama (Ward 34), who are interested in taking part in sport, but without basic resources.
I was heartbroken as I watched youngsters at a soccer training session playing without goalposts.
The truth is there is no such facility in Panorama, which is disturbing considering the poor and honest residents who pay rates.
The community asked the local school management if they could use their grounds for soccer training and community sports events after school hours, but the ground only has rusty and broken goalposts.
After appealing to the public for sponsorship, a local businessman - Segren John - heeded our plea and will be donating to the school.
This afternoon I will be taking John to the school ground to show him what we need.
To Mr John, thank you for saving our children and for taking care of the needy.
God bless you.
