IN celebration of Mandela Day, Mediclinic Hospital hosted a meal packaging event where staff participated and did their bit for 67 minutes.

Mediclinic contacted Stop Hunger Now SA in October 2016, as it was keen to host a meal packaging event as part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme.

The aim was to empower the many early childhood development facilities in the community to end child hunger.

A total of 10% of the meals were allocated to the disaster relief programme.

Stop Hunger Now SA set up the packaging event at Mediclinic on Monday, July 10.

Eager Mediclinic volunteers, together with pupils from Pelham Senior Primary School and the Maritzburg College Hindu Society, came together to make a difference.

Community service in a fun atmosphere was the order of the day and new friends and memories were made.A team approach, being a Mediclinic value, was evident as every one worked together to meet the target well before the time.

STATISTICS:

Production lines — 2

Volunteers — 80

Hours — 4 (target met in 3 and a half hours)

Meals packed — 20 000
