The day patients at the clinic of the Galeshewe Hospital received bread and soup on Mandela Day on 18 July.

This was possible thanks to the Galeshewe Thuthuzela Care Centre and Child Line in the Northern Cape.

This formed part of their 67 Minutes on Mandela Day.

They were applauded for the good deed by the acting facility manager, Dimakatso Tau.

Tau managed to take a few minutes out of her busy schedule to pop in at the stalls where food was being dished out.

It took the two organisations, Thuthuzela and Childline, only about half an hour to empty the two big pots of soup.

The patients were also joined by nearby squatter camp residents.

According to members of the two organisations, they have already identified the need and will repeat the initiative once a month.

“We will go and ask for more sponsorships for this initiative, as more people, especially children, will benefit from this,” said the director of Childline Northern Cape, Innecencia Mosemeng.

The site coordinator, Zandile Deyi, also said that such initiatives should be used to address the escalating gender-based violence issues, as victims tend to keep quiet about these issues.

Tau expressed her wish that the clinic of the hospital be included to participate in similar programmes by the two organisations in future.
