Good Morning Angels Festive Edition: Helping a woman with a heart of gold make Christmas special for others

Moerieda Davids has always worked in the community, to uplift, help, save and support whomever she could. Three years ago, Moerieda made it formal and the "Social Responsibility Group” was born. She did all of this despite fighting breast cancer herself. This year, Moerieda’s support helpers will not be able to help her with her annual Christmas feast for 500 homeless people. She refuses to give up and is therefore going solo.

GOOD MORNING ANGELS FESTIVE EDITION 1 DECEMBER 2016 (MOERIEDA/CELL-C)




REQUEST FROM: Janet Cloete


REQUEST FOR: Moerieda Davids


ANGEL: Doug Mattheus, Cell C Head: Marketing, our fabulous Good Morning Angels Festive Edition Sponsor


SPONSORING: Cell-C will help Moerieda’s initiative to supply compassion packs for the homeless and needy, with a donation of R30 000,00.  


BACKGROUND: Selfless, strong, survivor. That’s Moerieda Davids. She has always worked in the community, to uplift, help, save, support whomever she could. Three years ago, Moerieda made it formal and the "Social Responsibility Group” was born. This, despite fighting breast cancer herself. This, year, Moerieda’s support helpers will not be able to help her with her annual Christmas feast for 500 homeless people. So, she is going solo, as she does not want to disappoint those who enjoy her love and caring. This year, she wants to put together 500 compassion packs, containing everyday essentials like tooth paste and brushes for those who do not have the basics of dignity.


ORIGINAL REQUEST:

Good Morning Team

From incurable to incredible, I have a colleague who is a cancer survivor and lives with chronic disorders daily, but still manages to do the following ( please see info below), and never asks for anything for herself.


“I have always worked with the community, focusing mostly on orphanages, but about 3 years ago I made it official and started a group called Social Responsibility Group but the community knows us as SRG. With SRG we assist in getting kids off the streets that are on drugs and get them into rehabilitation programs either through community members who are running centers or through the government. We also help communities with food parcels and getting kids into safe houses. Basically we try to do anything and everything that we can with the community.


Over Christmas, we usually collaborate with another group and do the Christmas 500, where we endeavor to feed 500 homeless people on Christmas day. This year, most of my group members will be on holiday and I thought I would go solo and do compassion packs. My minimum I would like to do is 500 but I am aiming for as many as I possibly can.”


I would really appreciate it if somehow we could assist her with her wish list of the following:


Compassion Packs

 1 toothbrush

1 toothpaste

1 facecloth

1 bar of soap

1 Pair of Socks

A comb

Dry snacks

Waterproof Poncho (available at the crazy store)


If you can pack it in a carry bag, it will be great and if you can give only parts of a pack that would be great too

Thank you for all you do for our community.


 Kind regards,

Janet Cloete
