Blessed is the hand that gives than the one that receives.

Old Mutual has donated E5 000 to SOS Children's Villages.

This was revealed by SOS Childrens Villages fundraising and Communications Manager Nontobeko Mbuyane.

Mbuyane said; “This donation comes after Old Mutual was approached by Swaziland College of Technology (SCOT) Cultural group in collaboration with Miss Cultural Heritage.”

“As an institution that is closer to the organisation, noting the amazing work that is done by the organisation for the orphaned and vulnerable children in the country, we students felt duty bound to lend a hand towards the work of SOS Children's Villages,” stated Mthobisi Manyatsi who was the Student representative.  On the other hand, Old Mutual Marketing Manager Celiwe Dlamini, applauded SOS children’s Villages for the work they do in the daily lives of the children, “as a company we want to let SOS Children’s Villages know that their work does not go unnoticed and the impact they make in the lives of the orphaned children.”

“We specifically would like to thank the mothers for such commitment and love displayed in raising these children. It is such dedication that makes companies like us want to support SOS Children's Village's,” she said.

Thanking the company and the SCOT students for such a noble gesture was Nontobeko Mbuyane, who committed that these funds will be solely used by the beneficiaries school needs.

Mbuyane further implored other companies to follow suit and help support SOS Children's Villages especially within their ongoing ONE Lilangeni Campaign where all citizens are urged to donate at least ONE LILANGENI to the children's homes.
