Partnership of International Police Association and Special Operations Unit/ Special Service Unit (SOU/SSU) district extended a helping hand to the needy family.
The woman from Mabote village situated closer to SOU/SSU offices in Berea district in the northern part of Lesotho benefited from this endevour.
This family is comprised of mother and five children, three girls and two boys. The elder child is 14 years old.
According to the former SSOU/SSU chairperson Mr. Moruti Makhahlela who led this initiative, they read from the social media that there was a vulnerable family, which needed prompt attention.
“We were challenged as IPA members in our district and felt obliged to take action as soon as possible”, said Makhahlela.
He said members contributed candles, paraffin, clothing and cash.
The head of their unit Mr Halahala also donated with some items. Hence, his contribution played a major role.
“The woman was so grateful with the presents distributed to her”, continued the former chairperson.
“It is not the first time to perform such deed to the disadvantaged members of the society. Since IPA emanates within the police organization we uphold the Lesotho Mounted Police Service logo “Police a helper, a friend”, stipulated Makhahlela.
He indicated that this endevour would have not succeeded without their partnership with BAM group of companies.
“They responded to our call immediately when we approached them and we joined hands to help this family”, concluded Makhahlela.
Finite Life Style Club coordinator under the auspices of BAM Ms Moketenyane Mokoena confirmed partnership with IPA.
