DJ Lamiez Holworthy has finally fulfilled her dream of owning an orphanage.
She announced the news on her Instagram account, where she wrote: “With a dream of always having my own orphanage, I adopted 30 orphans in 2019 and have taken care of them with zero funding and zero sponsors since.”
“I’ve been blessed and lucky enough to finally find a space that we’ve slowly been transforming into a dream home for my kiddies and can’t tell you just how happy this makes me. I’ve always shied away from posting about it in order to not only protect the dignity of my kids, but also because my giving back has always been a direct way of communicating with God and my ancestors. But even this can get hard when you’re doing it alone (with nothing but faith and help from my husband Khuli Chana, my mom and my siblings, Lariezh Holworthy who manages the place, my brother Lush thechef and my best friend Oolga phaahla),” she wrote.
“I then realized that I don’t have to walk this journey alone and asked my friends at Bathu SA to donate brand new school shoes and sneakers. I wish you could’ve seen the pure joy on my kiddies’ faces.”
She said many called her crazy for taking on such a huge responsibility, given the state of the country and economy and all that is happening around her. But she finds comfort in knowing that God would not plant such a big dream in her without giving her the resources to make it happen.
“Is there still a lot of work to be done? Yea, sure but almost five years later and we’ve made it this far. The same God that made a way then will make a way now. Here’s to being even just a little light in a world filled with so much darkness,” she wrote.
