NGO serves food for needy

first_imgFood parcels have been handed out to assist the needy during the lockdown. The Mustadafin Foundation is among those organisations that are still seeing to the nutritional needs of the poorest of the poor – even during lockdown.Director Ghairunisa Johnstone-Cassiem said the organisation has a permit to operate during lockdown, however, food supplies are running low.Mustadafin has been handing out food parcels since Friday March 27, as well as distributing two meals a day to areas such as Hanover Park, Manenberg, Belhar, Tafelsig, Kalksteenfontein, Khayelitsha, Mfuleni and Delft. “We distributed 5 000 food parcels since Friday, and have fed about 1 000 people with a cooked meal as well. Our office in Bridgetown remains open, but most of our staff members are working from home. There are staff members who are currently living on the premises, to make things a bit easier,” Ms Johnstone-Cassiem said.The food parcels that were handed out provide meals for eight days. Food supplies are running low, however, and Ms Johnstone-Cassiem said they need urgent assistance from the public. Money can be donated into the organisation’s bank account. In Bonteheuwel, community activists took it upon themselves to assist needy families. The Bonteheuwel Development Forum (BDF) teamed up with the Omega home-based carers and street committees, and handed out food parcels to more than 200 families.Founder of the BDF, Henriette Abrahams, said she could not just sit back and watch how the most vulnerable must suffer even more during lockdown. For this reason she reached out to friends and residents of Bonteheuwel to assist. “All this was privately-funded. I reached out and asked for help. Some people donated as little as R10, and with the funds we raised, we managed to buy flour, rice, lentils, beans, gloves and soap. We also put an educational pamphlet in the food parcel so that the community can be aware how to protect themselves. Some people had nothing in their homes and most were waiting for their social grant payments. We are hoping more people out there will adopt our community, as we would like to be able to give the food parcels once a week, for the duration of the lockdown,” Ms Abrahams said.She said if people have food at home, then there would be no need for them to be on the roads in search of their next meal. When asked if they have a permit to do this work, Ms Abrahams said it is for this reason that they have partnered with Omega, which has a permit to do essential work.“There is very little contact between people. We make the food parcels under the strictest health regulations, and Omega helps us to get to the people who need it the most. The difficulty we have, is that people want to buy online and have the food delivered to my address to support this initiative, but all the retailers do not deliver in areas such as Bonteheuwel. Now we send someone to collect, or people make donations using electronic fund transfers (EFTs) or they use eWallet. I have to reiterate though that our contact is very minimal.”If you would like to assist the Mustadafin Foundation, call 021 633 0010 or email [email protected] assist the Bonteheuwel Development Forum, contact Ms Abrahams on 076 378 3842.last_img read more

CSKA dumped out of Europe despite stunning win at Real Madrid

first_imgCSKA Moscow stunned a much-changed Real Madrid with a 3-0 victory at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, but still finished bottom of Champions League Group G as Viktoria Plzen beat Roma.The Russian side, who also downed Real 1-0 in the reverse fixture, had to better Plzen’s result to finish third and qualify for the Europa League.But Plzen edged out Roma 2-1 in the Czech Republic to render CSKA’s famous victory ultimately meaningless.Holders Real had already progressed to the last 16 as group winners, with Roma through in second place.Home coach Santiago Solari boosted CSKA’s hopes before kick-off by making seven changes to the starting XI which beat Huesca 1-0 in La Liga at the weekend, leaving Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Raphael Varane and Toni Kroos on the bench.Real’s youngsters started brightly, with Vinicius Junior forcing visiting goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev into a fine-one handed save, and Marco Asensio then curling the ball against the crossbar.But Viktor Goncharenko’s CSKA claimed a shock lead in the 37th minute, as Fedor Chalov danced through the makeshift Madrid defence and bent a left-footed shot into the corner.Georgiy Schennikov volleyed home shortly before the interval after an excellent team move to leave Real facing an embarrassing loss.At half-time Solari sent on Bale, the two-goal hero of last season’s final triumph over Liverpool, with Kroos following soon after.But it was CSKA who extended their advantage, as Arnor Sigurdsson fired low past Thibaut Courtois in the Real goal with 17 minutes to play.It mattered little though, as Plzen secured a place in the Europa League last 32 thanks to Tomas Chory’s 72nd-minute winner against Roma.Midfielder Jan Kovarik tapped in to break the deadlock in the 62nd minute, only for Turkish youngster Cengiz Under to level for Roma midway through the second half.But Plzen extended their European campaign when Chory headed in after Kovarik’s volley was pushed out by Antonio Mirante.Teenage midfielder Luca Pellegrini was sent off in injury-time after picking up two bookings in quick succession, as Roma’s winless run in all competitions stretched to five games.last_img read more

Elementary my dear Watson

first_img3rd Peter LeNoury (11) 31 ptsB Flight1st Peter Henshaw (16) 35 pts2nd Lew Szigligeti (17) 35 pts3rd Michael Bungert (28) 33 ptsThe Land of Smiles just became a little brighter if that’s possible with the addition of Pattavia Golf Club (formerly Centaury Chonburi).  The gang braved the navigational challenges and a revamped course and caddy staff to award the newest addition to the Eastern Seaboard golf scamp the thumbs up.  The condition of the course was excellent, with fast greens that would more than match Bangpra.Certainly not complaining about the difficulty was that fine player JP Maffray who hauled off 38 points on the day in A Flight.  In fact JP was the only player to better his handicap although his card contained three wipes.Bob Watson.JP was six clear of the big hitting Dave Driscoll and a further stoke clear of a triumvirate of players; Peter ‘the right honorable’ LeNoury, Aussie Bob Watson and Bob StAubin.  Peter emerged from the pile-up to grab the last podium spot leaving the 2 Bob’s out in the cold.It’s a pity Freddy ‘star treck’ somehow ended up at the Emerald Golf club Bangchang, but I wouldn’t think for one moment he was lonely very long?The quietly resurgent Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw went head to head with his mate Lou ‘the thunder from down under’ Zig Zag as both returned fine 35 point hauls as they battled it out for the top podium spot, the former just nicking it by a point.  The bronze spot was also settled by a count back and it was Michael Bungert who prevailed over the unlucky Mick Terry’ pork chop’ Mangan.Broadmore Bob had the only 2’ of the day.  Bob, playing in the first group, hit the first par three green but could not keep the momentum going so did not bother to put out the flags.  This did not work out in Bob’s favour as he received only his entry fee back.JP Maffray, Peter LeNoury, Bob Watson and Bob StAubin shared the 2’s pot.Monday, Dec. 9, Bangpra – StablefordA Flight1st Bob Watson (3) 42pts2nd JP Gasser (10) 33pts3rd Max Scott (4) 33ptsB Flight1st Tore Eliassen (15) 35pts2nd Reg MacKay (15) 33pts3rd Walter Baechil (16) 32ptsC Flight1st Aiden Murray (23) 33pts2nd Ed Junger (20) 33pts3rd Thierry Danzas (24) 31ptsIt was off to Bangpra to battle the lightning fast greens and the monkeys.  Aussie top star Bob Watson was the big points getter on the day as he put a 42-point lashing on the field, which figured out to a three under gross for the A Flight and man of the match honors.  Bob really turned the screw as he was also the only player to record a 2 (all without any help from Holmes).Bob was a massive nine strokes clear of JP Gasser and Aussie mate Max Scott and a count back dictated that they finish in that order.The second best score of the day was held by Tore Eliassen in B Flight.  Tore bettered the pair of Scotland’s Buckie boy Reg McKay 32 points and Walter Baechil, one of the nicest and most effervescent personalities, who appears as appropriately dressed for a cross country ski race as he does for golf, with 31 points.C Flight struggled a tad with the fast greens as the 33 points of Aiden Murray and Ed Junger went to account back for the gold and silver, with Aiden’s inward nine holding up for the gold.  Thierry Danzas was as happy as Larry that his 31 points got him on the last podium step.Wednesday, Dec. 11, St Andrews – StablefordA Flight1st Bob Watson (3) 42pts2nd Reg McKay (15) 41pts3rd Thierry Petrement (12) 39ptsB Flight1st Colin Davis (17) 36pts2nd Eddy Beilby (18) 34pts3rd David Nicholson (16) 31ptsC Flight1st Jim Elphick (22) 34pts2nd Christy Knight (20) 32pts3rd Brian Cooper Kent (25) 31ptsNo, you are not reading a duplicate article, Aussie super star Bob Watson continued his superb ball striking by shooting 42 points at the always challenging St Andrews for his second 42 points on the trot, and amazingly he again carded the only 2 of the day.The guy in the wrong place at the wrong time was Scotland’s Buckie boy Reg McKay who had to settle for second despite his excellent 41 points.  Thierry Petrement edged Freddy Startrex on count back for the bronze.B Flight, which often goes high in stableford format, was more modest than their A Flight colleagues as the Donkey returned to winning ways to take the flight honours with a steady even par round.  Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby swooped in for the flight silver two shots in arrears as David Nicholson closed the flight a further three shots back.Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick snuck off with the top bag of loot in C Flight with 34 points.  Ireland’s best dressed golfer Christy ‘good’ Knight took the silver two shots back and the third place saw a logjam of three players at 27 points as Brian ‘mini’ Cooper squeezed out of the pile-up to claim his place on the podium.  The unlucky coinless pair were Jorn Finnerup and Graham Lawton.Thursday, Dec. 12, Mt. Shadow – Stableford1st Mike Bungert (28) 45pts2nd Anthony Williams (16) 37ptsHey where’s the old title boy today?  Well before the field could get too smug about keeping Mr. Watson off the podium, it was pointed out Bob had to take a rest day to let his golf shafts cool down.  So that left Mike Bungert to vault to the top of the podium with a magnificent 45 points, followed by Antony Williams and his fine 37 points, for the third game in a row the man of the match sunk the only 2 of the day.Friday, Dec. 13, Silky Oak – StablefordA Flight1st Paul Bray (5) 37pts2nd Jerry McCarthy (13) 36pts3rd   JP Maffray (11) 35ptsB Flight1st Mike Jefferys (17) 36pts2nd Colin Davis (17) 36pts3rd Peter Henshaw (16) 34ptsC Flight1st Bruce Walters (33) 33pts2nd Michael Bungert (28) 32pts3rd Jorn Finnerup (26) 32ptsWith it being Friday the 13th it seemed that if there was to be any safety it should be in numbers, so a large crowd turned out to take on the Silky Oak layout.Aussie Paul Bray showed no fear as he was the only player to better his handicap with a man of the match 37 points.  His A Flight mates, Irishman Jerry McCarthy and pay window specialist JP Maffray, followed Paul up the podium steps as they were strung out in one digit increments.Mike ‘the welsh wizard’ Jefferys galvanized the top spot in B Flight with an even par round but still needed the aid of a count back over Colin ‘the Donkey’ Davis.  Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw filled the flight 2 shots in arrears.C Flight again found the going tough as the 33 points of Aussie Bruce Walters took the top spot.  Michael Bungert edged Irishman Jorn Finnerup on count back to fill the minor flight placings.Amazingly all three A Flight winners shared the 2’s pot.Note:  Lewiinski’s is situated on Pattaya land Soi 1, Beach Rd Soi13/13 near Walking Street.  Anyone wishing to play with us just pop in and add your name to the list or call Colin on 089 826 0764.  Transport is provided.

Sergio Ramos cautions Cristiano Ronaldo for stepping out of line

first_img Ronaldo had said, about president Florentino Perez’s transfer dealings: “I have a clear opinion, but I can’t always say what I think. If I do say what I think, tomorrow I would be on the front of the papers and I don’t want that. “It could be for the better, it could be for the worse. I hope it will be for the better because they are players of a really good level. The norm would be for them to adapt well. 02/09/2014 Sergio Ramos, the second captain of Real Madrid, reminded Cristiano Ronaldo that he should follow the club line.  “If the president thinks that it is best for the team to sign certain players and to let others leave, you must respect those decisions and support them.” “With the new players the way we play will change,” he continued. “My opinion I will keep to myself, now is not the time to draw conclusions,” he said as he arrived at the Spain training camp.  CEST The Portuguese had spoken out after his friend Angel Di Maria was sold this summer, along with Xabi Alonso.  “If I was in charge, I would not do it like this, but everyone has their opinion and is free to say what they think. With key players leaving, the Portuguese forward expected the style of Carlo Ancelotti’s team to change. Upd. at 20:35 Sport EN But Ramos said: “Everyone will have their opinion and I respect that and I will not go to evaluate Ronaldo or any other player. We belong to the club and we must abide by the laws of the club. “Di Maria and Xabi were very important for us but they are gone and we have to be happy with the new signings. I am sure we will be fine.”last_img read more

Hazard says it would be a ‘dream’ to play under Real Madrid boss Zidane

first_img1 Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has reignited speculation of a future move to Real Madrid by again talking of his admiration for Zinedine Zidane.The 26-year-old is under contract at Chelsea until 2020 and has been rumoured to be in negotiations to extend the deal he signed in February 2015.Hazard, who joined Chelsea from Lille in June 2012, has been continually linked with Real in recent seasons, mainly due to his long-term respect for Zidane, the head coach of the Madrid side.“Zinedine Zidane would be a dream to have as a coach,” Hazard told RTL in his native Belgium.“He was my idol when I was little, I have a lot of respect for him.“Of course I don’t know what will happen in my career in the future, but to play under him would be a dream.“At this time, though, I’m happy at Chelsea. I still have a lot of things to do at Chelsea, and I’m focused on Chelsea.”Hazard recovered from an indifferent 2015-16 season to have a major say in Chelsea’s title win of last term, in Antonio Conte’s first season as head coach.The playmaker has made a slow start to the campaign due to sustaining a fractured ankle on Belgium duty in June.Hazard also insisted he would be prepared to play for Jose Mourinho again.Hazard and Mourinho did not shake hands before last Sunday’s Premier League contest between Chelsea and Manchester United, which the Blues won 1-0.Many pointed to the strained relations when Hazard played with a niggling hip/groin injury in the final months of Mourinho’s second spell as Blues boss, which ended in December 2015.But Hazard added: “Playing again under Jose Mourinho would not bother me.”last_img read more
