Give Them Hope Hosts Fun Run In Mamelodi; Nelmapius
Pinky Mothiba, Founder of Give Them Hope had organized a fun run on Saturday at Nelmapius Multipurpose centre in Lesedi Road. The event’s purpose was to rise awareness of the challenges were faced by people in the community especially those who live with orphans and neglected children. “The purpose of the event is to make aware of the challenges were faced on daily basis bringing up the orphans and neglected children of our community. It is the responsibility of the community to make difference in these children’s lives”, said the founder.
The founder added that most of the people just think orphans are put in the orphanage because they have lost their parents and not considering the fact that these children go through a lot of challenges, some of them were raped and some abused in so many ways and they need to be loved.
The event received support from Big Save, Master Copy, Distri Liquor, Spar Willow Way, House of Grace Worship Centre, Debonairs, Coke and the community were also part of the event.
The founder also mentioned that Mphaki Mashifane from Mams FM and Raymond also contributed to the event, IBA (coke) send them a truck with the system so it was easy for them to speak to the people at their event. The organisation also managed to make soccer tournament for the small clubs for the community.
