Police staff member Lephaphane Elsie Netshivhumbe is indeed worthy of emulation. If the society can have many of her type, I bet you, the world will be a better place to live in.
The fact remains that every society prays for citizens with good heart, people who can put smiles on the faces of others – especially people who have little or no hope of survival.
New 24 reports that the woman who recently clinched an award of excellence from the police national service has revealed the secret behind her success.
She bagged the award for her love and dedication to those less fortunate than herself at the police awards ceremony.
Speaking with New 24, the police staff member Lephaphane Elsie Netshivhumbe revealed that ‘Giving is what she does best’. The philanthropist also said that she feels fulfilled and satisfied each time she gives to the less fortunate.
“Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed giving back to the less fortunate and that fulfills me.”
“Giving is what I do best. I give because God is great and what people should know is that life is not about how much money you have, but it is about how much love you give,” she said.
She also said that she started identifying with social activities since 2003. Recalling her childhood life, she revealed how her father stood in for her mother, showing love to them all.
“I grew up without a mother but I was fortunate enough that my father was always there for us. So now when people lose their loved ones, I make sure that they are well taken care of. I also enjoy making people smile.”
The mother of three noted that she is not a millionaire but she always loves to see people smiling.
“I don’t have lots of money, but it breaks my heart when I see someone going through the pain of not having parents. So I always ensure the children that I care for have enough to eat – and also clothes,” she said
Netshivhumbe is known for taking care of members of the community by giving them food and cloths.
Speaking further, she enjoined members of the protection and security services to with identify a social club and make positive impacts by contributing money that could be used for emergencies.
“I also motivate other members to donate to the poor and to make a difference in society,” she said.
40-year-old Netshivhumbe is also the co-ordinator of employee health and wellness at a police building in Pretoria. She takes care of 22 children at an orphanage in Elandspoort in Pretoria West. She is also known for taking care of individuals at the orphanage and visiting the sick in the hospital.
She was the deputy champion of the Women’s Network.
