"Today @CollenMashFound successfully handed over a newly renovated and fully furnished 4 room house to the Mbatha child-headed family of 9. Their mother passed away in 2019 to cervical cancer, Mbali one of the siblings was also diagnosed with cervical cancer."
How their grandmother parented them
The young kids were being looked after by their grandmother who unfortunately succumbed to COVID-19 related complications in 2020. The orphaned children had been left dependant on social grants.
"Their grandmother also passed on in 2020 after being diagnosed with covid 19 leaving the siblings behind without any parent. The siblings survive on government social grants and assistance from neighbours," one caption reads.
Today, the ecstatic kids have a safe place to call their home and are certainly grateful for the foundation which provided it. It's hoped that a happy home will provide the kids with a safe space to grow into self-sufficient young adults.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a head cleaner, Mr Chris, in Unity Grove Elementary School in Henry County was surprised beyond his imagination.
To ease his work experience, a group of teachers pooled resources together and decided to gift him a car. It was the way he reacted to the gift that got many people talking.
In a video shared by Good News Movement on Instagram, the teachers took the man to the park, and pointed at the car they just got him.
