#HopeIsPower – Philakithi Center donation

Philakithi Center food donation from Hollywoodbets

Philakithi Community Service provides care to senior citizens in uMlazi’s Ward 85 and surrounding areas. The non-profit organisation’s mission is to provide community support to the elderly and strengthen relations with the community and stakeholders through promoting ubuntu and love. Hollywoodbets saw the good work that was being done by Philakithi Community Service and it saw food security identified as an immediate risk that was being faced by the organisation. As part of the #HopeIsPower campaign, Hollywoodbets donated food hampers to the organisation to help them following days of unrest in the country. Hollywoodbets will be keeping Philakithi Community Service on its database and will be fostering a good relationship going forward.

“We were heavily affected as the places that went to buy goods were no longer available. It is painful to live in South Africa and having money but have nothing to buy.”

Shabangu said some of the hardships that she came across were those of people who would ask her for food, but she could not help them as there was nothing available to eat. “I am very excited to see so much food. I believe that the person who will receive the food will be thankful, and if people are grateful for the food, then that makes me happy. Hollywoodbets has done so much and it is more than I could ever expect. I want to thank Hollywoodbets as what they have done is a great deed,” Shabangu said.
