Samke Sithole, a social worker at the organisation said they need more laptops to complete the NFD’s – their monthly stats that they submit to the Department of Social Development in order to receive the organisation’s subsidy payout.

“It’s very urgent, without a laptop our work is at a standstill. It’s one of the challenges we can not overcome without a good, working-condition laptop,” said Sithole.

If there’s anyone who can assist the welfare organisation by donating new or second-hand laptops or desktop PCs in good condition, they can contact Ellen Attwell on 084 016 8913 or 031 701 3288.
