Help pouring in for poor triplets’ family

MBABANE – Good Samaritans have been touched by the starving triplets’ story and have pledged to give them assistance.
Annandale Pre and Primary School, situated at Checkers, has pledged to help the triplets with a supply of food for the next three months, and will also assist them financially when the need arises.
Speaking to one of the directors, who preferred anonymity, they are still finalising collections of donations by some of their pupils who wanted to help after reading the sad article, which appeared in our newspaper yesterday. “We want to visit and see the triplets soon and we will be bringing with us some food hampers, including milk and clothes when we visit them.
“Our pupils were also touched by the story and they decided to help, but we are still finalising whatever they will be donating,” said the Good Samaritan. A male, who only identified himself as babe Dlamini, said he would today donate formula milk (Lactogen) for each child today.
“I am touched by your story and since these triplets need milk, among other things, I will bring three containers of milk for each child. “I am so glad that there are good journalists who can go all the way to remote areas to help in identifying these poor people,” said Dlamini.
Senior Superintendent at the Correctional Services Clifford Vilakati said he wanted to assist the triplets financially. He pledged to donate an undisclosed amount of money to the family. Two women also called this newspaper asking for directions as they said they were around Lubulini and wanted to go see the triplets. They said they would donate some food hampers to the family.
