BOIKANYO –THE Dion Herson Foundation (BDHF) in partnership with The Angel Network (AN) are set to host a massive party for over 1000 shack and hostel dwelling children in Soweto.
It happens at Sediba Thuto High Primary School –Mapetla on Thursday November 30.
This is the fourth year the party has been held for the young-ones.
BDHF has, over the years, touched the lives of over 12,000 children, assisting them with clothing, food, sanitary needs, disability equipment and also facilitating education.
The Christmas party will not only offer the children a plate of food and entertainment, but shoe boxes with toys, clothes and other essential items, which will be handed out to each child.
“The Christmas party is for them to unwind, forget about their reality, and live in the moment. Without our partners, sponsors and volunteers this event would not be possible and for that we are grateful,” said Marilyn Bassin, Founder and Trustee of BDHF.
The Angel Network is an online social media fundraising platform started by Glynne Wolman, which to date has over 22,000 members who assist with hundreds of pleas for assistance, nationwide. It aids organizations with monetary or in-kind donations.
