DUT PR STUDENTS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
By: Lucky Khanyile
Durban University of Technology Public Relations students took some time to support and help the children at Sydenham Children’s Home on Saturday.
The students came with food and stationery for the children. They played games with them and gave the children a lesson on the importance of eating healthy food to avoid infections.
One of the students, Sphe Mhlope, said they are very happy they made a difference in the lives of the young ones.
“This will help us grow and develop love and care for children as we now know more about children and their hobbies,” said Mhlophe.
Caregiver Thembile Khanyile said the students were very helpful.
“They were very kind and the children loved them,” Khanyile said.
Sydenham supervisor Bernice Fraser appreciated the visit by students and their donations.
“The students came here and they assisted a lot which is great, playing with our kids. Even if it is one day, they left a mark here,” said Fraser.
She added, “Initiatives like this will help the students understand how to deal with public matters and that will help them in their careers.”
The students urged the private sector to approach DUT to help sponsor their visits, as they will be planning to visit again during Heritage month.
