A few weeks ago, George Mwaura, CAST’s Sports & Youth Development Manager, matched one of his boys in KwaDabeka with a mentor. When they met for the first time at McDonalds, the mentor asked the boy what he would like for breakfast. Without hesitation, he said a BURGER!! He was so excited but waited to start eating, only to tell his mentor this was his first burger in his life… and he’s 17 years old.
When George shared the story at Westville Baptist Church, the owners of Grand Canyon Spur were moved so much by the story that they offered to provide burgers for CAST’s Youth Development End of Year Christmas Celebration.
In the words of George, “I could not hold my joy yesterday watching the boys take forever to munch their burgers. I guess it might have been the first one again for some of them. The things we take for granted….”
CAST would like to thank Grand Canyon Spur for their generous donation towards CAST’s Youth Development Programme.
If you are interested in making a difference this Christmas in another way, you can also get involved with CAST’s Snowflake Drive. It’s simple: You can sponsor a food parcel for R140 by buying a snowflake decoration at any of the Sunday Services at Westville Baptist Church until 28 Dec 2014. Your snowflake decoration is a reminder of the family you provided food for this Christmas.
