Photo: We are happy to announce that Desmond Hangana has been voted as your Community Hero for the month of October. Desmond is a 25 year old man who works with Living Hope, specifcally the teens who live in Masi. He teaches them about making good choices, often using his own life decisions as examples of what not to do. He goes into homes to visit with the families of the teens he mentors. He seeks to provide for their physical needs, doing whatever he can to channel resources to his teens. </p><p>Kevin and Christina go on to say that Desmond does not have access to a lot of financial wealth, but he is present and there for the teens. He shows them love by not just showing up once a week, or once a month and leaving. He is there - Everyday! He lives in the community, he builds their dreams, shows them choices and does so at the expense of his own. He may not have his own NGO, but he does what the NGO's can't. He lets the teens use him as a foot stool, to step up, to get a glimpse of what could be. There is no recognition for him, just the knowledge that he is making a difference.</p><p> Our Hero, Desmond receives a R500 gift card from Longbeach Mall and had the opportunity to choose a charity of his choice who would also receive a R500 gift card. from the mall.
