<p>EMPLOYEES from Afribiz Invest took time out to spend the day with the disabled children of Sithandiwe Disabled Care Centre that is based in Lombardy, south of Alex. The investment company operates from Sandton and is owned by Collen Mashawana, who committed to adopt the centre as part of the social responsibility project. It was a joyous day for Sithandiwe disabled kids as they were graced with warmth and fun from AfriBiz invest employees and friends. Mashawana was celebrating his birthday on the day and what a beautiful way to celebrate his birthday spending hours putting a smile and impacting on the lives of the special kids.</p>

<p>“We come here every second month to offer our support and give them food, toys and to also ascertain what other necessities they need to run the centre. They have become more like a family to us than just a place where we just come to drop money and food.” Mashawana said Mashawane went on to explain the importance of visiting centres like Sithandiwe Disabled Care Centre. “The majority of our employees have kids that are in a better condition than the kids here and it’s a exposure to them to see that there is a different world that other people live in. It is then from this that we should appreciate the Grace of God and the blessings, but most importantly to question ourselves about what we can do to assist those who are disadvantaged while we are in a better condition. It is not only for the company but also for us to have open hearts. ” The chairman added.</p>

<p>“This centre is very dear to our hearts and it is heartwarming to see the smiles on their faces. It’s my second time here and it feels at home, spending hours with them, interacting and giving them the love is just priceless. We are looking to play an important and huge role to the centre.” Said Managing Director of Afribiz Invest, Anand Elty. Managing Director shared the vision Afribiz Invest has for the centre that include seeing the growth and extension of Sithandiwe. He also mentioned that the company has big plans in store for the centre. Thandi Ndlovu, the founder of Sithandiwe Disabled Care Centre established the Centre based on her experience as living with disability.</p>

<p>“I’m extremely grateful for the support and love we receive from Afribiz Invest. People give us a glare as if we are a shame or curse in the community. I want to give these kids support, care and love that I wish I had growing up. With the support that I receive from Afribiz Invest, I am confident that my children are going to grow as happy and fulfilled children.” Ndlovu said. Ndlovu used the platform to urge the community and the country as a whole to respect people living with disability and to give them a fair chance as they give to able people.</p>
