    Joan Ramagoshi Madibeng visits SOS Children’s Village Mamelodi

    Former Miss South Africa Joan Ramagoshi Madibeng continues to give hope and support to shelters in and around Mamelodi. Last weekend the former Beauty Queen and Businesswoman spent her afternoon with children from the SOS Children’s Village in Mamelodi generously giving her time to help the organization raise funds and bring awareness the work that SOS Mamelodi fulfils in the community. In a bid to transform and continue with her philanthropic endeavours Madibeng invited some of her partners such as the Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup patrons and celebrity friends including Muvhango actor John Morapama to take some time out of their busy schedule, to come read, play and generate a lot of laughs with children from the Village.

    The Mamelodi SOS Children’s Village has been in operation for the past 28 years. The Children’s Village provides a safe home for underprivileged children and child headed homes. Many of the children receive full support from staff and from the community as they journey towards adulthood and their chosen careers.

    Joan Ramagoshi Madibeng who is one of Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup celebrity dash participants said: “Mamelodi is my home and the children of SOS Children`s Village are my family and I love them as I love my own children. Being a title holder doesn’t end with gowns and tiara’s but it’s our responsibility 365 days to make sure that we change the face of our communities by ensuring access to basic services and education,” expressed Madibeng.

    Children from the Village enjoyed a delightful afternoon with entertainment and a meal. Joan and her guests read and played soccer with the children, whilst children from the centre recited songs extending their heartfelt gratitude to Mrs Madibeng and guests. Through her partnership with Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup, Mrs Madibeng donated party packs and gifts to all the children.

    Thanking Joan for extending an invite, Muvhango actor John Morapama commented: “Community involvement is closer to my heart and when Mrs Madibeng called I immediately availed myself because I believe in bringing the best out of young people”, said Morapama.

    The SOS Children’s Village Mamelodi sojourn was fully supported by Gauteng SANSUI Summer Cup 2015.
