A South African couple who set a new world record by giving birth to 10 babies this week has received a R1 million donation from philanthropist Dr Iqbal Survé.
Dad Tebogo Tsotetsi, from Tembisa Township in Ekurhuleni, was in Cape Town on Tuesday as a guest of the businessman, who has offered his brood of 10 newborns and six other children including a set of twins R1 million.
Dr Survé congratulated the father of 16 on his latest addition to his family at his offices at the Waterfront.
“My family foundation, Survé Philanthropies, has informed Tebogo and the family that we’re providing substantial resources to them to help them through this wonderful but challenging time from the point of view of the babies.
“They will require good health care and education, food and proper accommodation.
“We are going to be dividing R1 million over a period of time and various other support services.”
Survé also announced that the foundation is helping the family with a trust through lawyers where South Africans can donate through the trust.
