Ballito residents and Crawford College North Coast students Deryn Burns and Courtney Fitchat have been “extremely humbled by the kind hearts of the people who have gone the extra mile to support us” in our endeavour to assist the orphaned children of Mr Moses Makhoba, the Enforce Reaction Officer who was murdered in the course of carrying out his duties in the Ballito commercial district. Having heard of the plight of young Msawenkosi (7) and Ayanda (13) who had lost their mother last year on News24, they immediately decided that they wanted to assist them in any constructive manner that they could.
Initially they appealed to their family, friends and fellow students at Crawford College North Coast for donations of food, clothing and money. After a positive and affirming response from this inner circle they decided to use social media to reach a wider audience so they posted their plea on Facebook. This resulted in an effective response from Radio Life & Style who invited them for a few interviews at which the idea of a community concert was developed by Dave and Michael Charles. Supported by Ms Vanessa Neyt (Deputy Principal at Crawford College North Coast) the community concert attracted a generous audience thanks to the numerous artists that performed on the night in aid of the Makhoba Charity initiative.
Throughout this charitable and selfless journey they have been supported by Enforce with both financial and legal support.
