Messina Home-Based Care
Lucky Masindi and Mukhethwa from the Hollywoodbets Musina branch recently handed over some essential items to the Messina Home-Based Care organisation. This organisation helps care not only for needy children in the area, but according to Info4Africa, they provide the following in their community:
We are a community-based (CBO), non-profit organisation (NPO). We provide home-based care services for sick people and support for their vulnerable family members. We bathe them, cook for them, clean their houses and ensure that they adhere to their treatment regimens. We run a drop-in centre where school-going children are assisted with their homework, they take part in extra-mural activities and play traditional games. We also do activities with the children during school holidays. Life skills training is provided for the youth, we distribute condoms and refer survivors of abuse and rape for assistance. We run weekly support groups for people infected with TB, HIV and AIDS, foster parents and people with disabilities. We also run workshops on HIV and AIDS, teenage pregnancy and cholera awareness. We assist and then refer people with applications for birth certificates, identity documents and social grants to the relevant government departments. We are open from 08:00 to 16:00, Monday to Friday. Our services are free of charge.
The organization was very grateful to receive from Hollywoodbets a Pioneer stereo, HP computer, keyboard, mouse, speakers, cutlery, 10Pc cookware set and refrigerator. The donation amounted to R10 000 worth of goods!
The Hollywoodbets Musina team were very happy to give back to the community they are a part of and to see how much the staff and children appreciate this donation.
