On February 17 children from Hamburg primary received a heart-warming surprise. “The donation was made possible through the support received from individuals was overwhelming and through these individuals we were able to raise R10 000,” said Lucinda Moonieya an Independent business consultant managing the project.

The funds were used to purchase 50 full sets of uniform for girls and boys. The PadRun generously donated sanitary towels for 100 young girls and the Dayimani Family donated toiletry packs for the teenagers and party treats for all the kids. No child was left empty handed as each was blessed with an item required to complete their school uniform or a toiletry pack. It was a heart-warming experience for the team to be able to bringing smiles to the children’s faces as they enjoyed their treats and spoils.

Moonieya added, “The uniform drive was developed into a unique campaign. The objective was to approach sponsors per child. However, we were able to purchase 50 complete uniform sets which were split up and given to the children as per their requirements for any uniform items and toiletry pack sponsored by Mntande Property Development. This drive served as a means to connect us as people and support our villages through sharing and showing love to those less fortunate.”

HERstory, is an impact relations agency partnered with independent business consultants, Lucinda Moonieya, Unathi Dayimani and supported by Mntande Property Development and M & C Business Solutions to create this transformative campaign with the purpose of creating social impact in the lives of disadvantaged women and children.

“In working together on the “Our Children” campaign, we as the partners came to a conclusion to join together on many more social initiatives. We strive to work together with communities to develop sustainable answers to challenges faced within the community” said Moonieya.  The focus is women-centred, as women drive healthy communities which leads to healthy societies. Moonieya adds,” This is only the beginning and we welcome support to all our initiatives as part of creating sustainable social impact in communities.”
