Mandela Day 2017 - Osizweni Centre of Hope

On a beautiful KwaZulu-Natal winter's morning the Pam Golding Properties Newcastle ladies set off to find the Osizweni Centre of Hope to bring its residents a little joy for Mandela Day. Little did they expect the heart -warming welcome they would received on their arrival ... smiles, songs, hugs and dancing had the PGP ladies in tears.

In the heart of Osizweni there exists a beacon of hope for the matter your age, house mother, Nomusa Khumalo offers shelter, food, a warm, loving smile or hug and a place of safety. The shelter is a large warehouse slowly being transformed into a facility that cares for the young and old with help from private sponsors and Rotary. Without regular subsidies or grants from government... at this point the Centre needs all the help it can get. 

A group of enthusiastic Osizweni High School teenagers greeted the PGP Newcastle ladies with exuberance. They immediately offered to assist with the off-loading of groceries, bags of mielie meal and birthday cake bought and brought to the Centre by the PGP ladies. The teens then treated the PGP ladies and Centre residents to a well acted comedy much to everyone's delight and laughter.  Laughter bubbled over into song and dance and soon the ladies were being coached on the art of Zulu dance culminating in a demonstration by a fun- loving "Gogo".

The PGP Newcastle ladies then cut the cake to celebrate Madiba's birthday and served to all, making sure that even the tiniest tot.... still in nappies, received a piece.

"Thank you so much for the warm welcoming. We hope this small gift from us will help in some way. Happy Mandela Day, " said Sam Wade, PGP principal, to the residents.

Before bidding farewell, Nomusa showed the PGP ladies around... it was humbling to see how much has been achieved with so little at the Centre. The ladies left knowing for certain that this Centre, its residents and its guardian, Nomusa, had crept into their hearts and that they would not be strangers.

Pam Golding Properties Newcastle will be collecting blankets, pillows, linen and mattresses for the Centre: we appeal to anyone who has extra at home to kindly donate to the Centre. The items can be dropped off at our Pam Golding offices:
70 Victoria Road Hutten Heights. 

Thank you to those who have already assisted us... it is really appreciated.
