Kukura Neshungu 2018 Report
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate and to make a difference.
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up. Kukura Neshungu Club had a couple of fundraising functions earlier this year and raised in excess of $2,600. From these proceeds, the club donated $2,000 towards the much needed repair of the gutters at Kukura Neshungu home in Dombotombo Township in Marondera.
The Club also successfully sourced 35 tracksuits for the staff as well as the pupils of Kukura Neshungu. The Club members were inspired by the words of mother Theresa to help the physically and mentally challenged boys of Kukura Neshungu when she wrote: Love is not patronising, and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same – with charity you give love, so don’t just give money and material things but reach out your hand instead.
The Kukura Neshungu club would like to express our heartfelt gratitude towards the unwavering support we received from the school during our fund raising exercises.
