Mthente ended off the year at Abaphumeleli Orphanage in Khayetlisha with a Christmas party for the children, and yes Father Christmas made it too (see pictures). Mthente and Father Christmas bought gifts and goodies for the children, and made a household grocery contribution in partnership with Pick n Pay Claremont, to the value of R5,000.00!
Mthente and staff reached out to our firefighting heroes during the 2015 Mountain blazes through an on-spot fundraiser in response to calls for donations via the media. The collection drive raised R2,000!
In partnership with AMKA Products, Johnson & Johnson, and the Cape Town Social Responsibility Drive Team, Mthente raised R8000 and reached out to the Baitul Ansaar Child Care Centre for a second year running to donate household and sanitary items to the Centre.
In the spirit of the words of #Madiba “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” (Nelson Mandela), Mthente spent Mandela Day reading to and interacting with children from the Nal’ibali Reading Club in Philippi. To add to this fun some colouring was organised for our younger leaders in the group. Staff and friends generously donated snacks and craft items to for the children in the group. Thank you guys!
The Mthente staff has decided to begin 2015 on a thoughtful and caring note by assisting a colleague-in-need to get an eye test done and subsequent to that, to purchase much needed spectacles. This was a warm hearted and covert mission by the Mthente staff which brought tears of joy and gratitude to the grateful Vuyani. In total Mthente staff & the company contributed R8,260.00!
