KZNCU & ILM-SA fund movie experience

Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union gathered children from the Rural and Township Development programme and sent them to Cine Centre at Suncoast Casino on Monday to watch the most talked about film of the year, Black Panther.

Fatima Asmal who works closely with the department assisted immensely in this initiative. Asmal worked hard on pooling together her resources in order to make this opportunity become a reality for the children.

“We put our heads together as a team, and having compiled all the logistics, I then contacted AB Moosa Jnr. the Managing Director at Cine Centre, whom I have known to be very giving, he then came back with a generous discount for the movie tickets,” Asmal said.

“So, through my Non-Profit Organisation, ILM – SA, I put the word out there and the response from my pool of donors was tremendous,” she concluded.

KZN Cricket Union Marketing Manager, Nana Ngubane said that this movie was a big deal for her and would not let a chance to have children from the township miss out on it.

“Black Panther was a soul awakening experience for me, my way of thinking shifted and started to view the world as a village,” she commented.

“I believe the movie is an extension of a worldwide conversation about inclusion and understanding the similarities and differences amongst nations.

“The display of non-stereotypical strong lead characters that feel attainable – I wanted to share my experience with young minds, to inspire and motivate,” Ngubane said.

The Union managed to raise funds that accommodated 123 children, with many that had never been to a cinema before while Promo Basket and Hollywoodbets Dolphins captain Khaya Zondo made it possible to get the children to the Suncoast Cine Centre by funding the transport costs.
