MUST READ: Newcastle Mayor adopts children’s homes

Pastor Thomas Beneke of St Martin’s Village was extremely grateful for the mayor’s generosity.

Leading the way to build a stronger community, Newcastle Mayor Makhosini Nkosi has adopted two children’s homes.

Having taken both St Martin’s Village and St Anthony’s Child Care and Youth Care Facility under his wing, Cllr Nkosi has made it his mission to assist the homes by mobilising support for their day-to-day functioning.

“It is imperative to help others, and as I always say, we rise by lifting up others.”

On Tuesday, October 31, Cllr Nkosi donated a substantial amount of money to both homes.

“While this donation might not be a big amount, it does come from the heart and will hopefully help the homes,” said Cllr Nkosi.

Furthermore, Cllr Nkosi claimed the donation would not have been possible without the assistance of businesses.

“Gibb Engineering assisted in making the donation possible, and I would encourage other businesses to come forward to help make our community a better place.”

Pastor Thomas Beneke of St Martin’s Village was extremely grateful for the mayor’s generosity.

“The home isn’t that old, but the support we have received from the community, businesses and the mayor has been beyond our wildest dreams.”

The monies donated by the mayor would go towards St Martin’s Village’s chicken run, with chickens being sold from the home to help it become financially self-supporting.
