Free State SAPS joined hands with a well-known Bloemfontein fashion store to donate blankets, socks, gloves, beanies and sweets to 30 elderly citizens at the Boiketlong Old Age Home in Selosesha, Thaba Nchu. The theme of the project was “Taking care of the elderly citizens”. Fashion World’s Bloemfontein branch came on board by giving back to the community.
“We felt it was a proper way to say thank you to the elderly citizens for being pillars of their different communities. They have educated, nurtured and instilled discipline in the current generation,” Brigadier Sam Makhele said, while Fashion World manager, Abu Bakar Louw, pleaded, “Please also pray for the current crime situation within our country so that the police can fight crime.”
