MAFETENG — Thaba-Bosiu Risks Solutions put smiles on the faces of orphans at Andrew Blair orphanage when it handed over Christmas hampers last week.
The founder and Managing Director of Thaba-Bosiu risks Solutions, ‘Matokelo Seturumane, said they wanted to make sure that the orphans did not feel forsaken during this time of sharing.
“The moral and spiritual development of these children is of paramount importance, especially during Christmas times when the children should not feel lost,” Seturumane said.
She said she only knew about the orphanage after reading our sister publication, the Lesotho Times, where Sister Agatha Tsaeng the Head of the Orphanage spoke about the challenges the orphanage was facing.
“I only learned about the place after Sister Tsaeng told the Lesotho Times sometime this year that they needed proper care facilities since the centre was meant to serve the whole country and not just residents of Motsekuoa,” Seturumane said.
She added that orphans as the kids in the centre may be, they all have the potential of becoming very important people in the country.
“We believe that all children are born with a potential to influence the future, the economy and even contribute something great to the country,” she said.
She further encouraged the orphans to guard their minds and lives against detrimental influences and urged them to make the right choices in life in order to be successful. Thaba-Bosiu Risks Solutions also gave the orphanage bookshelves and bedroom cupboards as well as shoes and presents for each of the 51 children who live at the centre.
On behalf of the orphanage Sister Tsaeng said they appreciated what Thaba-Bosiu Risks Solutions had done for them adding that they have been made to feel as important as everyone else during this important time of the year.
The Andrew Blair Orphanage has 51 orphans living at the Roman Catholic Church-run facility managed by Servants of Christ the Priest Sisters.
It was opened in January this year with 30 children aged between six and 19.
