Her Majesty Queen Masenate Mohato Seeiso has challenged members of the Hlokomela Bana Foundation to apply more concerted efforts towards transforming the lives of vulnerable and orphaned children.
She said this during an event held in Maseru where she indicated that by so doing, they will be attracting more companies and people of goodwill to donate to the Foundation, thus making it easier for them to fulfil their mandate of helping the needy.
At the event, proceeds collected during Her Majesty’s celebration that was held in June were presented to the Foundation, AVANI Hotels-Lesotho and Lesotho Highlands Development Authority (LHDA) gave away a cheque of M10 000 each, while Botho University gave away a M3 500 cheque.
Her Majesty added that there are numerous organisations in the country giving back to the needy communities countrywide, thereby expressing her heartfelt gratitude that her Foundation has been selected as the beneficiary.
Speaking on behalf of Hlokomela Bana Foundation, Mrs. Mabataung Mokhathali said the purpose of this foundation is to support Her Majesty’s efforts in helping needy children, adding that it does not belong to a certain group of people but belongs to all who aspire to achieve goals and objectives of the Her Majesty in growing children thereby calling upon more Basotho women to join them.
According to her, Hlokomela Bana does not work with only certain types of children in the country, but all those who are vulnerable and orphaned, thereby thanking the companies for meeting them halfway in order to meet the demand of those in need.
