Random Acts of Kindness with Dis-Chem

Emasi children's home gifted with R120 000 in Dis-Chem goods

CapeTalk, in partnership with the Dis-Chem Foundation, has donated R120 000 to Emasithandane in Nyanga.

Emasithandane, affectionately known as Emasi, is based in Nyanga East. The home provides a number of educational and afterschool programmes for orphans, abused children and those from vulnerable families.

Currently there are 39 children living at Emasi. The home also provides a community feeding kitchen to an additional 25 children in the community.

CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies spoke to Nomkhitha Matinase, the centre’s co-ordinator on the show this morning and surprised her with the great news.

Nomkhitha was overwhelmed with emotion: “We are so grateful. I don’t have the words to thank you enough.”

The Foundation’s Penny Stein commended Emasithandane for doing such great work in the community.

We are delighted to be able to help them. We hope that this donation with lighten their load and help make a difference in the lives of the children they look after.
