Bank hands over new hall to centre

MASERU-STANDARD Lesotho Bank on Monday handed over a new hall to the Morapeli Disabled Centre in Motsekuoa in Mafeteng.
The bank, which has been helping the centre with groceries for years, found that it had an unfinished building in its yard and decided to complete it.

According to the bank’s representative in Mafeteng, Matšeliso Ramoqopo, they wanted to give back to the community.
“The community is the one supporting us,” Ramoqopo said.
She said the bank began giving out groceries to the centre four years ago.
The centre is home to 40 children who are living with disabilities.
Ramoqopo said they collaborated with their Mafeteng branch to choose the centre.

Ramoqopo said while helping with food for those years the centre asked for help as they were struggling to finish up their hall and the bank agreed to raise funds for them.
“We installed windows first and then later decided to install a celling,” she said.

She said they then joined hands together and contributed to buy things like alcohol on special days and sell it taking the profits to the bank.
She said they have already spent M20 000 on the project but they will continue to help until the building is finished.

On behalf of the centre, Sister Mary Mokoma, a nun with the Roman Catholic Church, said they are thankful that the bank is giving them such huge assistance.

She said they appreciate the bank’s food donations that have been coming, adding that they are faced with a big task of taking care of the disabled.
On behalf of the students, Qamotane Maina, said they really needed a hall for various jobs they do at the centre therefore the donation will be very helpful.

“We were in need of a proper hall and you are helping us,” Maina said.
