Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and more recently Orlando Pirates are changing lives for the better with their impact stretching far beyond the field of play.
The majestic FNB Stadium was a sold out affair with two of Mzansi’s biggest teams going at it on Saturday afternoon, with more than 80 000 people in attendance.
Amongst them was a special guest by the name of Atlehang, a young boy with a terminal illness.
As part of the Reach for a Dream foundation, an organisation focused on fulfilling the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses, the young Pirates fan had his dreams granted.
He got to meet his favourite players, Vincent Pule and Thembinkosi Lorch. He also managed to walk onto the pitch after the match and walked away with a signed adidas t-shirt from the players.
Just the other day, Kaizer Chiefs spent the day at their village with young Lethu, whose only wish was to meet his Amakhosi stars.
While his favourite team might have been on the losing side on the day, it was an experience young Atlehang will remember for the rest of his life.
What are your thoughts on both Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs’ acts of kindness?
