Hollywood Mthatha chose the SOS Children's Village as their organisation of choice for Hollywood's Social Responsibility program. The team talks about their visit here.

Anathi & Andiswa from the Hollywood Mthatha team paid visit to the SOS Village on the 17/09/2014. They brought with them brand new mattresses for the home, as well as brand new Karate gear for the children.

It was such a great pleasure to see the kids receiving their brand new Karate gear! The smiles on the little kid’s faces really showed how appreciative they were. Some of the children told us it was their first time ever to wear proper karate gear since they started training. They had to borrow or hire if they were attending tournaments. But now they own their own suits, and you can see that this is just so special to them..

Karate is a great sport the children are learning, as it teaches them discipline and self defense - two very important attributes that these children need growing up.

The home on the other hand were so grateful for the mattresses. They currently did not have enough beds to sleep all the children. Some were currently sharing because there was such a shortage. They are relieved there will no longer be fighting between the kids for one mattress!

We are so humbled and pleased that we were able to assist this worthy cause, and give something back. We would also like to thank the Hollywood team as a whole for showing that we care! Thank you!
