NELSON Mandela’s vision was to see underprivileged people looked after on his birthday on 18 July.

The day was officially declared by the United Nations in November 2009, with the first UN Mandela Day held on 18 July, 2010. However, other groups began celebrating Mandela Day on 18 July, 2009.

Kokstad Management Area wardens spent their 67 minutes donating toys and food to children in EG and Usher Memorial Hospital.

The head of Ebongweni Correctional Centre, Zacharius Zimema, said correctional services partnered with Nando’s to bring change to the children’s ward and toys and Nando’s snacks were given to the children.

The mother of a six-week-old baby, Zabanguni Ngcaweni, was grateful to received toys for her baby.

“I wish every day was Mandela Day.”

Pick n Pay assistant store manager, Bevan Nyamadzawo, and employee Lwazi Thusi donated toys and sweets to children at Comfort Home Orphanage in Kokstad.
