Johannesburg- the Universal Peace Federation through The Dr S.B Radebe Foundation awarded two charity organisations with two cheques amounting to $5000 each.
In attendance were Reverend Ghomsi Jean-Augustine and Ms Mpho Mathobo from The Universal Peace Federation and Family Federation, Arch Bishop KK Choma and Lady Bishop KM Aphane from Inkululeko Yesizwe Association.
Reverend Ghomsi Jean-Augustine alongside Dr Prophet Uzwilezwe Radebe founder of The Dr S.B Radebe Foundation handed over the cheques to Saint Martin’s Catholic Apostolic Mission and Eyethu Youth Centre For The Disabled for the sterling work they have and continue to do in their charity organisations.
The small but very meaningful gathering was MC’d by The Revelation Church of God President, Bhekinhlanhla Sibisi “we are all here under the organisation UPF family federation because of Dr Prophets Uzwilezwe Radebe’s affiliation with the UPF.” President Sibisi said.
Eyethu Centre for the Disabled was founded in 2004 by Emily Mogoai who had previously worked with disabled children for 20 years as a caregiver. “When I was retrenched from work, I saw a need for a centre for disabled children in my community,” Emily said.
The centre caters for children who have special needs and accommodates 20 children who are boarders and 60 day care.
“The money will assist with buying new wheelchairs for the kids who do not have wheelchairs as well as purchasing educational toys and other equipment needed for the children.”
Saint Martin’s Catholic Apostolic Church is a church that does not only minister the word to its folks but also considers the struggles and hardships of its congregation. Prophetess Marcia Matala started with feeding small children who would come to her home to play with her children. “Children from my neighbourhood would come to my home to play with my children and I released that some of them came from disadvantaged homes and did not have food.” The Prophetess said.
“I would then cook more food so as to feed the children; it was from that I started a feeding scheme.”
The Prophetess would start sharing her grocery with the needy in her neighbourhood and from there the initiative was adopted by the church and has expanded to not only feeding hungry children but also families that are destitute.
The work done by the UPF and The Dr S.B Radebe Foundation is nothing short of exceptional.
“If you are a giver and not because you are expecting something in return, it is hard to explain it in today’s world. But for those who truly know what it means to be a giver then they will know what I am talking about.” Dr Prophet Uzwilezwe Radebe said
The Prophet went on to give a brief clarification on the Prophets relationship with UPF’s True Mother “My partnership with UPF is about commonalities, I spend my time with people I have commonalities with.”
The charity organisations were congratulated and advised to use the donations they have received for the greater good and most importantly, wisely.
