Boitumelo Foundation brings cheer to the elderly

Christmas came early for senior citizens on Friday as, amid cheer and jubilation, Boitumelo Foundation donated food hampers at Mogoditshane Kgotla to be distributed among elders aged over 60 years in different communities.

Chairman of the Boitumelo Foundation, Ramachandran Ottapathu, expressed his appreciation to the community and stated that the foundation would be helping various villages across the country. “We are here to show our sincere appreciation to the community through giving back with Boitumelo Foundation. This time we want to give lunch to 1,000 people and school stationery for 1,000 children,” he said, much to loud cheers from the elated audience

Giving an overview on behalf of the Boitumelo Foundation, Sarah Mulwa detailed the donation and how it will be distributed. “The foundation is donating food hampers for the household, food hampers for Christmas lunch and school stationery to various villages in the area,” she said adding that the donation project was worth P500,000 due to the hampers and distribution to various villages. “The past two years have been very difficult due to the Covid 19 pandemic.
