Charity Drive - Diwali

We would like to thank all those who have supported the Sandton Yuvak Mandal's Diwali charity drive.

We received generous donations in various forms of non-perishable goods, which were highly appreciated by the children and caregivers at the Ikhaya Lomusa orphanage. 150 cans were donated by the public, and SYM matched this quantity by acquiring food items that amounted to an equal monetary value. With your generous cash donated, we were also able to obtain a good supply of stationery that was well-needed. 


Just a reminder that Ikhaya Lomusa orphanage is a project of Rays of Hope, and is situated on the outskirts of Alexandra at the bottom of Marlboro Gardens. The aim of this home is to provide an opportunity for every young child to reach their full potential, thus ultimately rendering them to live independently and become contributing members of society as adults.

Throughout the year, let us remember that acts of goodwill can go a long way, and that those who are less fortunate than ourselves benefit immensely from kind donations.

Once again, thank you for all your incredible support for such a worthy cause.
