Port employees from Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) heeded the global call to mark Nelson Mandela International Day by being of service to others.

This year the Authority encouraged employees who volunteer for causes in their personal time, to nominate organisations they wished to support through TNPA’s Mandela Day activities.

TNPA’s activities impacted more than 15 organisations and thousands of disadvantaged individuals across schools, old age homes, palliative care organisations, informal settlements and many more.

The Port of Cape Town team painted and cleaned at Shiloh Education Centre and donated groceries to Douglas Murray Home Retreat and Thandokuhle Arthur Makubo Foundation.

They also cleaned up and painted at Zanemfundo Primary School in partnership with Beautiful Gate South Africa.

Further supplementing the activities on Mandela Day, various Transnet operating divisions in the Eastern Cape held the ‘Transnet 67 Minutes with 67 Employees for Mandela Day’ initiative on Friday, 21 July.

This saw 76 employees from Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), Port Terminals (TPT), Freight Rail (TFR), Engineering (TE), Projects (TP) and the Transnet Foundation assist with administrative work, cooking, cleaning, recreational activities and exercises at the Ekuphumleni Old Age Home in Zwide and the Lukhanyiso Children’s Home in Uitenhage.

Employees handed over donations of groceries, toiletries and kitchenware.
