On the 6th May 2016, the Icebolethu Foundation hosted a Mother’s Day Tea for the elderly held at the Ntokozweni Village for the vulnerable in Port Shepstone, Izingolweni village.
The day was dedicated to the Home by the staff of the Icebolethu Group, where we provided a lunch for the elderly and with much needed essentials that were identified, such as 40 warm blankets and of course making the day extra special for the elderly with a pamper session, which included a foot spa for the 40 elders who reside in the Home.
Needless to say that the elders of the Home and not to mention the entire staff, were so grateful and in awe of our presence that day. A truly humbling and heart-warming experience, not only for our CEO, Nomfundo Mcoyi- who was also present on the day, but the staff of Icebolethu at large.
Brief Profile of the Home:
