LottoStar partners with KFM and contributes R150 000 towards the Truck of Love initiative.
On this particular morning, in the month of December, The Truck of Love group, including Sibs Mafu from the KFM Mornings team, visited three organisations: Pebbles Project Trust in Stellenbosch, Leliebloem House in Cape Town and The Brooklyn Chest Hospital Ward B in Brooklyn, Western Cape.
The Pebbles Project Trust which started in 2004, help to enrich the lives of disadvantaged children and families. They have impacted many lives by providing support and intervention in these five key areas: Education, Health, Nutrition, Community, and Protection. This non-profit organisation passionately supports children and their families in the farming communities of South Africa.
Leliebloem House in Cape Town is home to 60 children between the ages of 4 - 18 from troubled families. Their mission is to "improve the quality of life" of deprived children whilst providing relevant services and opportunities, which are best suited to each child and their families.
The Brooklyn Chest Hospital (BCH) is the largest public Tuberculosis (TB) hospital in Cape Town. Many of their patients, including children, come from under-developed parts of South Africa and are in great need of medical assistance and support. BCH treats patients of all ages and currently has 56 pediatric beds.
The Truck of Love team were excited and eager to get the show on the road and start delivering supplies and gifts. They were welcomed by ecstatic yet curious children singing their favorite holiday tunes. The smiles and joy on their faces were priceless and will never be forgotten.
LottoStar is extremely proud to have had this opportunity to help children in need over the festive period.
It's not just a little that goes a long way... a truck load does too! - source
