Entrepreneur and philanthropist, Collen Mashawana, once again inspired Mzansi after gifting a deserving family with a new home. His foundation handed over a new home to Mrs Modihe, an elderly woman whose son had tragically been killed in a political rally in Hammanskraal.
Her son was the only breadwinner and had been trying to build his mother a home before he was killed. The house remained unfinished and was falling apart.
Mashawana wanted to make her and her late son’s dreams come true by helping to build a secure and comfortable new home, improving their living conditions and honouring her son, Briefly.co.za found.

Mrs Modihe's son was killed during a political riot at Hammanskraal and left his elderly mother in a house that the only breadwinner was trying to build for her. The unfinished house in Stinkwater is now in a terrible state and falling apart. The philanthropist has committed to making her dream come true and improving their living conditions.
Mashawana and his foundation do incredible work in helping struggling South Africans get back on their feet. Over the past few years, Hammanskraal residents have rallied together in protest of various issues, from poor service delivery, poor water quality and unjust evictions.
