Choir spends time doing good, reaching out

Some young people from Nkqubela in Robertson are committed to dedicating some of their time to doing good to others, making a difference in their lives.

One such group, the Simunye Youth Choir, visited the Joseph Matwa Old Age Home on Saturday 2 February to spend time with the elderly and help staff perform their duties.

“We do not have money or material things,” Christopher Lisiea, chairperson of the choir, pointed out, “but we have a little bit of time on our hands, and we saw fit to use it by visiting the elderly and spending time with them.

“These seniors have given us so much, so why can’t we spend time with them and give something back? Most don’t get visitors, so they were very glad to see us.”

The group entertained the elderly through song or just by chatting and helping where they could.

According to Lisiea, the choir has decided on a series of initiatives to uplift and support their community. “We want to be more involved in our community and help where we can,” he said.

“We so often think we need to have money or experience, or something special, to make a difference, but all we actually need is time and ourselves. This is merely our way of saying we care.”
