Seepapitso Class of 95 donates blankets.
Minister of Health and Wellness, Dr Alfred Madigele says indeed 'blessed is the hand that giveth'.
Dr Madigele was offering 100 blankets to patients at Kanye Seventh Day Adventist (KSDA) Hospital, which were donated by Seepapitso Secondary School Class of 1995 in Kanye recently.
Presenting the gifts to the hospital management, he commended the Class of '95 for taking the responsibility of assisting patients, more so that the class of 1995 have been helping different communities in various capacities since the formation of their club.
Dr Madigele, who is also Member of Parliament for Mmathethe/Molapowabojang said it was during winter season that most patients were impacted by the harsh cold weather conditions and as such donating blankets to patients was the right decision, an achievement which should be recognised because it had ignited hope in the patients.
He encouraged class of '95 to consider extending their assistance to other villages and commended them for staying ahead of other classes by donating to the hospitalised.
He said hospitals countrywide face myriad of challenges such as shortage of blankets, transport, equipment, staff uniform, boilers and medicine and the donation came handy to address such needs.
Welcoming guests, hospital superintendent Dr Brenden Tombs thanked Class of '95 for extending a helping hand towards the patients, the feat he said would be celebrated and glorified by the beneficiaries.
Giving the vote of thanks, Dr Patson Mazonde said, 'go sego letsogo le le abang'. Dr Mazonde thanked the class of '95 for considering the patients' needs and challenges.
On behalf of class of '95, Ms Chamie Motsho stated that they started their re-unification in 2012, and have since assisted many disadvantaged people by fundraising through personal contributions.
