On friday  delivered the blankets. On saturday we distributed the blankets.   I was so happy that we delivered the blankets on Saturday morning. I think Saturday must have been the coldest I felt this whole winter especially Saturday night when I heard the wind howling.

JOHANNESBURG – The City of Johannesburg  has donated about  R1 million  to non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to go the extra mile to provide care for the city’s needy.

The money, totalling   R955 596,81, was given to seven local NGOs by Executive Mayor Amos Masondo during a ceremony at the Nelson Mandela Theatre yesterday.

The NGOs were found to be in dire need of funding and were therefore helped by the city.

They were Tshwaranang OVC (orphans and vulnerable children), Helping Hands Berario Organisation, Thulani Dlamini, Sizani, Albert Luthuli Home-Based Care, New Life Centre for Girls and the Mountainview Healthcare Centre.

Among others, the NGOs  support orphans and vulnerable children, destitute families and people living with HIV/Aids.

Tshwaranang OVC manager Sheila Thomas was excited when Masondo gave her a cheque for R100 000.

She said  it was the first time her organisation, which cares for more than 300 children, had received “such a huge amount”.

“We are so grateful. The money came at the right time. It will fill a gap,” Thomas said.
