RubiBlue engages with Othandweni

RubiBlue, intelligent business solutions provider, donated food, clothes and essential items to Othandweni Community Development Services in Mooiplaas to uphold its commitment to the legacy of Mandela Day.

The day, held on Madiba’s birthday of 18 July, marks a significant moment in South African history and inspires people to make a difference. This year, RubiBlue focused on a NGO that’s committed to helping people with HIV, AIDS and Tuberculosis. “This year we asked all of our staff to dig deep and find ways in which they could contribute to Othandweni,” says Chris Ogden, CEO, RubiBlue.

“We collected food, toys, clothes, blankets and other essential items for the month leading up to the day and then arranged to have them delivered on Mandela Day.” The employees at RubiBlue managed to collect a huge variety of kid’s, men’s and ladies’ clothes, coffee, milk and sugar, plus they made more than 300 sandwiches for the people helped by Othandweni.

The toys and child-related items were also taken to the creche next door. Every item went towards making the lives of people in the Mooiplaas information settlement easier and more comfortable. Othandweni Community Development Services provides support and care for those who have serious illnesses such as HIV, AIDS and Tuberculosis. Its work is essential to the community and the donation made by RubiBlue made a much-needed difference this winter. “We couldn’t believe it,” says Saseni Mabaso, community lead at Othandweni Community Development Services.

“People were so grateful – one gentleman was on his way to beg for food when they arrived and he was now able to eat a meal without having to beg. The children were so happy, they are still laughing about the gifts they have been given.”
