Ginosta Trading, renovation contractor, and “Enough is Enough” worked together to provide gifts to poor families in the Pilgrim’s Rest community. Grocery parcels to the value of over R1000 were handed to three Pilgrim’s Rest families who have no income. “Enough is Enough” is a local concerned group and they identified the families in most need of assistance.

Ginosta Trading recently won a contract to renovate three houses in Pilgrim’s Rest. Owner, Gino Khoza, agreed to support the local community by donating three gift parcels to the poor for each of the three houses being renovated.

“I am so happy that there are still people who think about those in need” said Doris Mathebula who is looking after two grandchildren and is one of the recipients of a grocery parcel. “I did not have anything to put in the pot for the children. It came at the right time because January is a very difficult month.” She also hoped that others in need could be supported in the same way.

Joseph Khumalo (Chairman, Enough is Enough) pointed out that there are many destitute families in Pilgrim’s Rest due to job losses over the past few years. “We appreciate the generosity of Ginosta Trading and hope that future contractors will follow their example,” said Khumalo.
