Orlando Pirates midfielder cum-striker, Thembinkosi Lorch finally handed over a R10 000 donation cheque to a Non Profit Organisation, Ikageng Itireleng home in Orlando West, Soweto.

The generous gesture was part of his Man-of-the-Match winning prize requisite during the Carling Black Label  Cup that took place back in July.

Ikageng Itireleng is a community based organisation that cares for the orphaned and vulnerable children around Soweto.

 

Lorch told the media that he comes from a family that likes to help needy people.

“I learned this gesture from my father and believe the money will go a long way in helping this home.”

Pressed why he chose the Orlando based home?

He said, “  It’s close to our home ground.”

Carol Dyantyi, Founder and CEO, told this publication they were very excited about the donation.

“ I am on cloud nine. This country has too many challenges. If corporate is not making money there is no way they can think of us.”

Khwezi Vika, Brand Manager for Carling Black Label said this is one home that speaks to victims of gender based violence.

“As a leading brand we support all campaigns that are fighting gender based violence,” Vika argued.
