THE Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA) spent Mandela Day with the children of Issa Children’s Home in Oshabeni.

The organisation started their day by donating blankets, clothing and food to the home in the morning, they then took the children to the Port Shepstone beach for their beach clean -.

Lungelo Keswa from WESSA said the clean-up was an important part of their Mandela Day programme as it gave the children the opportunity to get out of the home and learn about the importance of keeping the environment clean.

“Living in a children’s home, they might feel despondent and neglected at times, so we wanted to show them that there were people who care about them, and that they matter too,” said Keswa.
