On the 14th of January Africa Unite handed over school items to some of the Singamakhalipha children at a back to school event held at the Gugulethu Sport Complex. The event was attended by Singamakhalipha children, their parents and guardians. Local community newspapers, namely City Vision and the Daily Sun were also present covering the event.
This is one way of actualising our psychosocial support programme meant for vulnerable children in the disadvantaged townships of Nyanga, Gugulethu, Phillipi and Europe.
The donation that was handed over consisted of a shirt, skirt, pants, jersey, socks, school bag, shoes and a ruler. The uniforms were in different colours aligned with the respective school uniforms. Among these children there were also refugee children living at Lower Crossroads in Phillipi Township.
