SuperSport United players Grant Kekana and Aubrey Modiba in partnership with Phuti-Matt foundation took time out today to donate food parcels, sanitizers and face masks at Ga-Mamabolo area in Limpopo.
The pair who were joined by former Bafana Bafana defender Edward Motale and Polokwane Municipality representatives handed over the donations to 90 needy families.
Modiba, who hails from Ga-Mamabolo, says his wish is to go back to the area and help more people.
“We wanted to reach out to 100 families but we only managed 90,” Modiba told the media who attended the event at Mentz on Tuesday.
“I asked Grant (Kekana) together with Phuti-Matt for the support so that we can come and help this community because I grew up here so I know the struggles here because they really wanted my help even though I couldn’t help everyone and I wish we can come back again and help other people,” he said.
Kekana, who is also from Limpopo, spoke on teaming up with his friend Modiba for a good cause.
“It started off at the team you know we were colleagues and then we became friends but now we are more like brothers because we also partake in a business together.
“Obviously this warms our hearts because we know that our people are struggling but these are the same people that cheer us when we are playing so it’s not the best of times because there is a huge pandemic going on but this is our offering to them that we appreciate their support and we care about their well-being,” said Kekana.
The two Matsatsantsa teammates spent about R20 000 for the donations from their own pockets.
