Mandela Day calls on us all, every day, to make the world a better place.
This year we celebrated 100 years since Nelson Mandela’s birth,
AND with the help of our very GENEROUS COMMUNITY
we filled over 100 metres squared in honour of his great legacy!
Thank you to everyone, companies, schools and individuals alike who joined us for this lovely day. We received a true mountain of donations:
- Over 300 nappy-packages and 85 tins!
- 424 baby items from shampoo to lotion and vaseline!
- PLUS over 1000 food items and 745 stationery items.
We are deeply grateful for the amount of support Mandela Day generates each year. These donations directly translate into BETTER CARE and BETTER EDUCATION for our babies, preschoolers and teacher trainees—as it makes our arms strong to work with and for them, rather than working day in and out to cover our daily needs. With these donations, we have enough nappies and formula to help cover our daily needs in the Babies Home for 5-7 months! These donations ALSO allow us to support families in need by providing care packages. THANK YOU for partnering with us to invest into the lives of the vulnerable, giving them tools for a brighter future!
