MASERU-(MaraviPost) – South Africa based preacher Prophet Shepherd Bushiri on Thursday donated ZAR 2 million South African’s Rand ((MK100 000 million) towards the development of Lesiba Children’s Home in Maseru, Lesotho.
The money will help in the construction of the hostel wing at the centre as the children currently use their classrooms as dormitories.
The upgraded infrastructure will also allow the Children’s Home to accept more children and further aid the community.
Lesotho’ Deputy Prime Minister Mothetjoa Metsing, hailed the Malawian-born preacher for the demonstrated loving gesture.
The leader and founder of Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG), Prophet Bushiri made the heartfelt gesture as part of his ongoing MK1 billon Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) philanthropic project, which he kick-started in July.
So far, close to ZAR3 million (MK150,000 million) has been spent on reaching out to various orphanages in South Africa.
Making the commitment, the Prophet said every child deserves proper care and love.
Bushiri added that it is the duty of everybody to make sure there is no child going hungry and failing to get an education because of their vulnerability.
“I love every child as my own. It will always be my burden to ensure that I share whatever God has blessed me with,” said Bushiri.
Lesiba Children’s Home keeps vulnerable children from all over Lesotho. The children get free education, accommodation and meals.
