Miss Soweto, Buhle Xulu, recently spent the day at the Golden Ark Care Centre for orphans and vulnerable children. Here she delivered a motivational talk, spent time with the children and handed over a donation of White Star maize meal.
The Golden Ark Care Centre was established in 2014 and is led by men and women from various social and economic backgrounds within the community. Based in Mzimhlophe, Orlando West, the centre is home to 165 kids, with 100 of them in Primary School, 25 in High School and 40 below the age of six. These children all come from abused, child headed or vulnerable households.
Buhle felt compelled to visit the Golden Ark Care Centre to establish a stronger, long-term relationship with the organisation. Her wish is also that orphans and vulnerable children (specifically) are empowered to take charge of their destinies.
“The centre is not far from my home and I have decided to step up to the challenge and generate awareness around this worthy cause in Soweto, and hopefully in the greater parts of Gauteng too,” she says.
Says White Star Marketing Manager, Mokhele Makhothi, “This initiative highlights the fact that White Star strongly supports donations of food to needy and deserving organisations.”
