There is so much to do in the community for children including orphans and vulnerable. Reverting to do more for the community, BlackLive (local clothing brand) together with Matemba (drop in centre) have gathered for children’s Christmas party and also celebrated Worlds Aids Day. The event took place in Mamelodi extension 4 near the community library on the 1st of December. The organization have organized the party and BlackLives joined in and donated clothes for the children.
On that day the children were performing drama, dance and the best performers won prizes. “The event was to encourage children to dream big despite their backgrounds and to make them feel loved and secure. There is no worst feeling than seeing children with no proper clothes, I really feel touched when giving them a word of motivation. It felt like they needed those words in order for them to start believing in themselves”, said Fortune Mduduzi Zondo, founder of BlackLives . He added that the feeling of helping the kids was great, seeing those humble and innocent souls happy and his aim was to add hope. He thanked his business partner Mbongeni Habile for helping him making this happen. About 70 kids attended the event tat day. City of Tshwane sponsored the event and the event started at 10 am.
