Hayley Glasser, as an executive and founding member of the Angel Network, was much involved in helping the needy even before the Covid-19 crisis struck. Over the past few weeks, she has continued this essential humanitarian work through her involvement with the Sandown Strathaven CAN. The group has to date collected money for 600 non-perishable food parcels, as well as for clothes, toys and books.
Throughout this time, social welfare activist Clive Mashishi has been an indispensable part of the team. It is he who has feet-on-the-ground knowledge of the needs of the various communities he helps, including in Benoni, Sebokeng and Vereeniging, and who is responsible for seeing that whatever becomes available reaches those who need it most. With the approach of winter in mind, the Sandown & Strathaven CAN is now in the process of collecting wearable fleece blankets for kids of Clive’s communities.
Hayley says that Clive, by his own examples, continually motivates her as well as her fellow CAN members to keep trying to do more.
“Clive is the most selfless human being imaginable someone who considers everyone in his community day and night and does all that he possible can to ensure that they have food and are looked after” she says.
