The NHBRC in Limpopo handed over a home to an indigent Mamphake family on the 29th August 2016 in Malematja Village as part of its CSI initiative to commemorate the legacy of our erstwhile President, Nelson Mandela.

The house was given to a family of two orphaned girls aged 15 years and 10 years who had to move in their blind grandmother’s home when their house collapsed.

This was the third house from 2014 where NHBRC was handing over a house to the destitute family, and the organisation is committed to do this on an annual basis.

This was done in partnership with the Greater Letaba Municipality, Zhora Khan Developers and the Provincial Department of Cooperative Governance, Human Settlements and Traditional Affairs (Coghsta).

The handing over was graced by the Honourable Mayor of Mopani District Nkakareng Rakgoale, Local Mayor of Greater Letaba Municipality Peter Matlou, local councillors, and the community.

This was the third house since 2014 that the NHBRC is handing over to a destitute family.

“The NHBRC is a key institution in the delivery of quality homes. As such, we would like to contribute to this by ensuring that we leave a lasting legacy to various communities by providing sustainable homes,” says NHBRC Provincial Manager Nurse Chavalala.

Chavalala also handed over an enrolment certificate to the family which is an assurance that the home was built by an NHBRC registered builder and has a five-year warranty against any structural defects.
