Mandela Day

18 July has been declared Nelson Mandela International Day, but as South Africans we take the opportunity to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s life for the month of July. 

Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s first democratically elected president in 1994. As a champion of reconciliation, he was instrumental in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Before his presidency, Mandela was heavily involved in anti-apartheid activities. He served 27 years in prison, many of which were spent with other sentenced freedom fighters. [Supplied by MandelaMonth2019]

What can you do for Mandela Month?

There are many activities in and around our Community that neighbours can participate in on 18 July as part of Mandela Day. 

The Animal Rescue Organisation (ARO) as well as U-Turn Homeless Ministries, need  your support in giving back this Mandela Day. Check out the Events Page to find out more.

Here are some other ideas on how you can contribute:
- Contact your local HIV organisation  and find out how you can help.
- Help out at your local hospice.
- Many terminally ill people have no friends or family who can visit them. Take a little time to have a chat and find out what they need.
- Donate toys to the children's ward at your local hospital.
- Tutor kids in school subject you are good at.
- Donate your old computer or books to a school.
