Ulwazi Group Chairperson Bongani Mabizela distributed food parcels to six identified needy homes in his hometown Hammersdale, Unit-1 North at the weekend.
After hosting the Ulwazi Hammersdale Festival, Mabizela gave the six families food parcels to the value of R5 000 each. The distribution was part of Ulwazi Group’s Corporate Social Investment Campaign.
Gogo Mchunu and her grandchildren were the first of the six families to receive the parcels. She was in tears when she saw Mabizela and his team come into her house with food.
“This was a pleasant surprise. We had no idea of what we were going to eat. May God bless Mabizela and his generosity,” said Gogo Mchunu.
The people of Hammersdale were touched by the grace Mabizela has shown and is still doing for his hometown. Ward Nine Councillor, Lucky Mgwengwe thanked Mabizela on behalf of Hammersdale.
“Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are for all that you have done for us, may you live longer and never forget where you come from,” he said.
Mabizela has a poor background. As a child, he always wanted to make a difference in people’s lives.
“It was a very touching experience, seeing the gratitude from the recipients. This reminded all of us of how grateful we must be for our many blessings,” said Mabizela
