Pensioners were fed hot soup as they queued for their old age grant by Mahlomola Masombuka of Makhubedi in Winterveldt, with the assistance of two journalism students at Nkuna Post Offices recently.
Without any financial assistance, the unemployed Masombuka self- funded the whole initiative out of his own pocket, realising that he is very passionate about giving back to his community. He then initiated Sgandi Feeding Scheme which the aim of eradicating hunger.
The initiative prepares bread and soup to local Orphanages and Old Age Homes. Mahlomola, together with his two associates catered at Nkuna Post Offices where elderly people gathered for their social grants remissions.
“I am also helping orphanage as well as the Good Hope Orphanage board member, I do need a sponsor,”Said Masombuka
In his interview with Tshwane Bulletin Mahlomola Masombuka said “It just came in mind to help the community as I understand that our councillors are doing nothing for us”. I don’t have a sponsor I am doing this alone and spending my own money to help.”
“I am also helping orphanage as well as the Good Hope Orphanage board member, I do need a sponsor,” said Masombuka
Above all, job creation is the priority. The Sgandi Feeding Scheme is calling out on everyone who can assist in making the initiative a success by donating funds as they are in need of a sponsorship. To get in contact with Mahlomola you can call 0715545674 or WhatsApp him on 0785873337▪
