An Old Naledi non governmental organisation Matlo go sha mabapi recently got a donation of books and clothing items from Brotherhood Club of University of Botswana.
This according to the coordinator of Brotherhood, Bahati Mwemutsi was a gesture which was inspired by one of the vision 2016 pillars of a healthy and educated nation.
“As Brotherhood Club we are trying to build the right kind of man in society; a positive male figure. We also do many charity activities which include clean up campaigns, health seminars and donating clothing items to charity,” he said.
He also said they are planning to revamp the church building that was donated to Matlo go sha mabapi to make it a day care centre for the children in Old Naledi.
Matlo go sha mabapi Director, Leabaneng Masedi said they work with people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and vulnerable people of Old Naledi.
She said the organisation was started in 2002 and has been helping people in the community especially children as they are more vulnerable.
“We have been working with the people in Old Naledi, donating some clothing items, food and other items they need. We also make sure those who are on medication take their medication. Just like any other NGO we are faced with many challenges and the main one is money. There was one man who used to assist us financially but now there is nobody assisting us. Its a struggle from day to day. I would like to thank Brotherhood for their generous gesture,” said Masedi when receiving the donated items.
