Matthew Kenyon-Wimbush making the lives of others a little better

Written by: Sithandwa Ngwetsheni

At just 10 years old our Youth Hero for June is making it his mission to make the world a better place.

The Youth hero decided to do his bit after seeing a lot of people in need,he couldn't just sit and do nothing.

Matthew Kenyon-Wimbush started collecting clothes, shoes toys and more for a charity called Little Brinks. They look after abandoned and abused children and young people.

Matthew expanded his project to also include collecting for disasters like the fires in Hout Bay and Knysna. When people lost their homes in the #KnysnaFires he organised and collected two loads of boxes to be sent to Knysna.

Below is his Facebook page where you can check out his amazing work:
