Queen Priscilla Percy Moyo, the second wife of King Mambo last week donated various goodies and hosted a Christmas party for the elderly who stay at Entembeni Old People’s Home, The Sunday News reports.
Queen Moyo said she was compelled to donate to the elderly because they are usually neglected by their families during Christmas time.
Speaking during the Christmas party. Queen Moyo said:
As we are in the festive season, it is important to remember the elderly as many people forget about them while busy with their lives. Another problem is that people tend to treat elderly people as children.
The elderly also have feelings like us and they also feel the need to celebrate the festive season just like many people but people, let me say relatives, have dumped them here and there is no one to make sure that they celebrate with them. These people also want to feel loved, that is why we took this time to be here with them.
A resident at the home Thembinkosi Ndlovu said residents highly appreciate Queen Moyo’s gesture when he said:
We appreciate this kind gesture as Christmas time can be a very lonely time especially if you don’t have any children, like me all my children are now late and my grandchildren are busy with their lives so knowing that someone thought of us touches the heart.
