Participate supports the iThemba Lethu family

By: David Wilson

, Oct 7, 2016

Our very own David Wilson has taken up the challenge to support the children of iThemba Lethu. He will be cycling the 106km Amashova Classic Cycle Race from Pietermaritzburg to Durban on Sunday 16 October 2016 to raise funds for the children supported in this incredible initiative.

Ethan and Roxie van der Linde are house-parents at the iThemba Lethu Transition Homes in Manor Gardens. The two homes currently care for 11 orphan and vulnerable babies and children, who are threatened by HIV/AIDS and facilitates their reunification and adoption into permanent families. Since 2001 to date they have co-ordinated 24 reunifications and 92 adoptions, seeing each child fulfill their destiny of growing up as a son or daughter in a forever family!

Ethan is a fanatical cyclist and has arranged a team of cyclists to cycle the Amashova to raise funds for the transition homes.

As a company, Participate has also sponsored the cycling shirts for the team. While we know it’s a small contribution, we believe every bit helps towards changing the lives of the children in the iThemba Lethu family.

If you would like to support this initiative you can donate via eft to iThemba Lethu Nedbank Cheque Acct 1301 240 958, Branch Code 130 126, or by PayPal or Zapper – all details on www.ithembalethu.org.za “How you can help”.
