THE EBENEZER ECD centre and the Thebe ya Kgomotso Old Age Daycare in Bloemanda, Galeshewe, recently benefited from young model Kananelo Molusi’s charity drive.
The seventeen-year-old said she visited both centres after identifying them for their “vulnerability and need to be protected and given tender love”.
At the ECD centre, she treated the children to a Christmas party with a jumping castle and food and party packs for each child.
The elderly were treated to a special pampering day, with a foot care spa, while their blood pressure and blood sugar levels were checked. They were also treated to a delicious meal.
The young beauty pageant finalist also assisted with the erection of sustainable vegetable gardens at both centres.
Kananelo is among the young finalists who were shortlisted for the “Miss Goddess Supreme” pageant that will take place at the Flamingo Casino on December 9.
The pageant is an empowerment programme that is all about showcasing beauty, confidence and talent.
Kananelo said both centres are close to her heart because they are both located in the community where she was raised. She therefore took on the responsibility to treat the beneficiaries at both centres.
“Both groups are vulnerable and need to be protected and shown love,” said Kananelo.
“The children are our future leaders. Therefore, they need role models and mentors in their communities to grow with compassion for one another.
“It is always an honour to take care of the senior citizens who are now frail, but once taught us and took care of us.
“The happiness that was written all over their faces melted my heart.
“I chose to adopt both of these sites and will give services whenever I am available.”
