They can now define the true meaning of Mandela Day

21 July 2014, 15:22

They can now define the true meaning of Mandela Day!

Izanokhanyo Community Based Project in Kliptown Soweto was embraced with the arm of love for the very 1st time this year. This highly appreciated occurrence happened when the international call was made to help where you can in honor of the late DR Nelson Mandela.

For a small center that has no donors or monthly sponsors to maintain it, the Mandela day this year was the day they can never forget. It was a great surprise for the whole community of informal settlement in Kliptown Soweto. The turnout from various companies that gave the vulnerable children of informal settlements who are registered under the database of Izanokhanyo Community Based Project a taste of what it means to be a child. Keys Communications, Gold Reef City, Cyest Corporations and African House Wives League made it a perfect one for these children. From building a vegetable garden into throwing an amazing party with jumping castles for the kids, it meant a lot to them. Now surely those children who came at the center on Mandela day can now define what it means to be a child living in a democratic country, Thanks Madiba.
