Diagnofirm donates water tank

“When I see people suffering, I just can’t help it,” so said Diagnofirm Managing Director, Mohammed Iqbal Chand after his company donated a 10, 000 litre water tank (jojo) to a former street boy who had struggled with the idea to set up a car wash business.

For a number of years now, Bokamoso Richfelt Mogorosi, 25, originally from Tonota, was a permanent feature at the Middle Star shopping complex parking space where, at first he would badger shoppers and Diagnofirm Medical Laboratories (DML) clients for coins and food to keep hunger pangs at bay.

Last year, Mogorosi put up some crude structure on the Nyerere Drive, on a space adjacent to the shopping complex’s parking space. But he could only manage to wash five cars on a good day, he said, which was not enough for him to feed and pay rent for himself.  “We realised he was serious about doing something with his life.  We decided to offer him the 10,000 litre tank so that he can start a business. We want him and his friends to make an honest living. With this water tank, he can wash as many cars as possible and still be left with enough to do other business with, like selling the water,” Chand said, who added that they were in the habit of assisting the under-privileged.
