Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Sammy Seabi took some time off from his club schedule to continue to help out the needy families during these difficult times.
Through his Sammy Seabi Foundation, the former Polokwane City player donated food parcels to unfortunate families around the Mamelodi and Sunnyside areas in Pretoria last weekend.
This afternoon, the 25-year-old took the food donation drive initiative to his home village at Mongwaneng Ga-Mamabolo and the surrounding villages in the Limpopo Province.
“Without food there is no life so we are just trying where we can but bit by bit we will all overcome,” said Seabi.
“In life you don’t live alone so you need to help people you live with and through this foundation we seek to help those who desperately need our help. This is in me because I grew up like this so hunger it’s something that I know as well.
“I know the struggle very well, I wouldn’t say I am better off now but if I see someone struggling I don’t laugh at them but instead I try and each out because I know the struggle.”
The foundation will be taking their food donation drive to the other parts of the Capricorn District (Limpopo) from next week.
Seabi says his wish is to reach out to at least 100 families in all parts of the country and not only at his home province.
