UKZN staff and students have donated new toys to the East Coast Radio (ECR) Toy Story initiative.

The toys will be handed out to children at orphanages, child-headed households in KwaZulu-Natal, hospitals and crèches.

UKZN’s Director of University Relations, Ms Normah Zondo, said the University was pleased to be involved in the project. ‘The University pulls together every year to contribute to this project as part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility and the community,’ said Zondo.

The Corporate Relations Division drives the project at the University in an effort to make a positive difference to children’s lives.  ‘I hope these toys bring joy and smiles to children in our province,’ she said.
