SPONSORED | Roots Butchery changes lives in Nkomazi

The Roots Butchery team, in partnership with Mr Mpumalanga finalist Norman Mahlalela, recently donated some food parcels and a wheelchair to a man who had been in dire need of assistance.

Roots Butchery in Nkomazi is changing lives, one good deed at a time.

The team donated a wheelchair and some grocery packs to Themba Ndubane on Friday April 19 through their 500 Smiles Project. According to the butchery’s manager, Daniel Ponte, they had received a request to help Ndubane with some food parcels and a wheelchair, but little did they know his situation was much worse than they had imagined. “When we made the first donation, which was a week prior to this one, we found that his house was not in a good condition. There was no door, the windows were broken, and he had to crawl in order to get around the yard.”

Ponte and his team immediately decided to help Ndubane by building a ramp for him, installing a door and windows, and giving him even more food parcels. “The process to get his house fixed up took about a week after we had consulted with the neighbours to help find someone who could do the job quicker at a quality rate. We have also learnt that Ndubane lives alone with no family, hence we decided to help him where we could. The 500 Smiles Project is aimed at working closely with children, but in cases such as this one, we make the exception to help where we can,” he added.

This project was done in partnership with Mr Mpumalanga finalist Norman Mahlalela.
