Local entrepreneur Vivian Reddy had a beaming smile as he officially opened the KwaMashu Family and Child Welfare Society’s new home.
Thanks to a whopping R10 million cash injection from the Sibaya Community Trust, Reddy’s charity organisation, the KZN-based society will enjoy state-of-the-art facilities.
The society previously operated from a shack for nearly 30 years.
Briefly.co.za noted that the new building will include a library with a learning wing, a computer room, a kitchen, hall and offices, amongst others.
Reddy revealed that the Sibaya Community Trust was blown away by the outstanding work done by the KwaMashu Family and Child Welfare Society and that was the motivation behind the aid.
IOL reported that the organisation had 41 staff members and that they utilised a 3-bedroom house and a shack for their operation.
The news was shared via social media as well, which attracted numerous heart-warming responses.
Thobile Khakhuse Syabonga said, “Momie I witness it I was there I even saw u mom today but couldn't come n greet u ububaba.”
Wandile Manqele added: “Power to the man who like people of South africa.power to that Mr viven Reddy.”
