Thorn April and his friends have not stopped making South Africa a better place. Brothers For Life have a weekly feeding scheme.
Briefly News had reached out to April to ask about his programme in April and learned that he and his friends aim to make the community a better place by helping those in need.
Briefly News was fortunate enough to learn that he and his friends have fed over a thousand people, approximately 800 children and 200 elderly in his community.
"We've got a lot of children in my are that are in special need i just wish I could do more for them!"
He revealed that he wished he could do more but he only has a small business and some of his companions are not employed.
"I wish we could feed people each and every day but some of us are not working and I only depend on a small business."
April recently posted in the Facebook group #ImStaying that he had fed more than 100 kids this week.
"It is very important as South Africans to look after our Children". A few days ago we managed to feed more than 100 kids. We never forget where we come from. #Very proud. #I'mStaying ❤️"
Facebook users praised Thorn and his friends for the amazing work that they do:
Elizabeth Motshedisi Lefoka Mofolo:
"Blessed is the hand which give than receiving "
"May the Lord multiply where you take from and expand your territory of effectiveness!!!"
"May God bless those hands and protect them."
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Mzansi is known for having amazing people who help others. The Brothers For Life Campaign has started an initiative to help those in need by cooking food for the hungry. They have set up a Facebook page that explains what they hoped to achieve:
"Our mission is to create a drug-free generation, involving families and communities to power change and flourish in a drug-free environment."
They took to the streets on Friday 23 April and according to them, it was a huge success. Earlier in the week, they took to the Facebook group #ImStaying to share what they are doing to help people.
The post was captioned with this touching message:
"As me and my friends prepared to feed the hungry tummies through cooking for them ❤️"we never forget where we come from". One of the most reasons I'm Staying."
