Motsha Teens reach out to informal settlements in Ratanda

The non-profit organisation Motsha Teens reached out to residents of informal settlements in Ratanda on April 8. Lerato Maloka (executive mayor: Lesedi Local Municipality), ward councillors and other representatives from LLM joined the organisation in an effort to ensure that people from informal settlements are provided for. 

Members from Motsha Teens were able to distribute 100 food parcels in two days, which included a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, maize meal and non-perishable items. The residents were educated about the importance of good hygiene and hand sanitiser was handed out.

“We emphasised the importance of social distancing and encouraged people to stay home and only go out for essential supplies and services,” Pretty Kekana (co-founder) of Motsha Teens said.
