LIME interns help teen

MOVED BY AN inspiring story, interns of the 2012 LIME Summer Student Programme have made much needed donations to assist in the care of Darik Phillips who was rendered helpless by an asthma attack four years ago.
Through a mandatory community project themed Mission Invasion, the 36 interns held cake sales, contributed one day’s pay from their summer earnings and walked around with sponsor sheets to raise just over $5 000 in funds to finance the project to assist Phillips whose story was highlighted in July 15, SUNDAY SUN.
LIME matched the donation, rounding off the overall funds raised at just over $10 000.
Last weekend the participants handed over to Darik’s father, Terry Phillips, two months’ supply of supplements valued at over $4 500 along with a supply of four cases of personal care items, and a special mattress.
LIME intends to apply the remainder of the funds to Phillip’s utility bills. (AH)Please read the full story in today’s DAILY NATION, or in the eNATION edition.
