While waiting for the go ahead from the Premier Soccer League to resume with their training, Baroka coach Dylan Kerr took some time out to go help donate food parcels for those in need.
Kerr joined hands with politician and Member of Parliament, Solly Malatsi, to provide food relief to families in Mentz, Polokwane on Wednesday.
“Making people smile is what I am all about and to see people smile is what life is all about,” Kerr told FARPost.
“Working with others who can support local communities to help those in need is something I am proud of as an Englishman who loves the South African people, the country in today’s crazy pandemic BLM (Black Lives Matter) and GBV (gender-based violence) world, we can make a difference no matter how big or small others need our help,” he said.
Meanwhile, Malatsi said they did their bit with the help of the Taiwan Liaison Office in South Africa.
“We specifically targeted these (families) because no child deserves to go to bed hungry regardless of their background while single mothers carry the overwhelming responsibility of providing for their families without any stable income,” said Malatsi.
“As young people it is important that we use the spaces we are in to uplift poor communities. We are grateful to our partners, the Taiwan Liaison Office in South Africa, for their support to feed these families,” added Malatsi through his SML (Solly Malatsi Legacy) foundation.
Kerr has also told this publication that the club will only return to training once they receive the green light from the League but they are ready to meet any requirement needed.
