As part of Corporate Social Responsibility, Lesotho PostBank visited Matholeng Safe House at Mafeteng, Lesotho on the 31st of July 2020. Briefly, Matholeng Safe House began its operations in 2001 as a community project to feed vulnerable children and elders in the area. Through the help of the Former Deputy Prime Minister Archibald Lesao Lehohla, the community and 155 Ireland Volunteers were able to build a home for the vulnerable. Since 2008, Matholeng Safe House has been providing food and shelter to the vulnerable and continues to sustain the orphanage centre by producing their very own, Petroleum Jelly, Variety of Sauces, Porridge and aid from the Ministry of Social Development. With assistance from 10 caretakers, the home looks after 16 children with the age range of 3 years to 24 years and attend schools from pre-school to higher education level (tertiary).
Lesotho PostBank therefore through its existing corporate social responsibility project called ‘BankaTemeng“, took it upon itself to visit Matholeng Safe House, to clean and revamp the house by painting and also donating a variety of household furniture, cosmetics, food and sanitizers. In the words of Basotho “sejo senyane ha se fete molomo”
