A large number of families who live at the hostel collected food parcels.

“We are grateful for these donations by these NGOs who are helping our people who are in dire need. We know that more especially the hostel community is one that is neglected and forgotten and we are grateful that this will go a long way in poverty alleviating poverty,” said the Gauteng IFP leader, Bonginkosi Dlamini, who was also on site at Denver.

300 families were given food parcels.

“We call on all the NGOs, whenever we ask them for assistance, to assist us because as government we can’t do it alone,” said Mabaso.
