AFRA Mandela Day 2016

A massive thanks to all that donated towards the Mshengu fund!


Thank you to everybody who contributed their time and made donations towards improving the life of uMkhulu uMshengu. Today we were joined by the LRC and DRDLR to handover blankets and foodstuffs to him and his family. Among the people that heeded to our call was UMATI, an organisation of commercial farmers who mentor and facilitate socio-economic development initiatives in the Upper Midlands area.

UMATI unbelievably donated a 1000lr Jojo Tank towards the initiative. Now uMkhulu would not have to walk kilometres to the nearest water source to fill his containers.

The money that AFRA and DRDRL have raised will go towards fixing Mshengu’s house.

We appeal to you to continue making donations, as you can see, Mshengu’s house quite dilapidated and your contribution would help change that.

  2. As a long time follower of living safely at home,
    I value your post. Regrettably, lots of people today don’t agree with me and recommend a nursing home for their aging parents.
    I have tweeted a tweet your blog and bookmarked
    the site.

    Thanks once again for your quality article.
