IN CELEBRATION of Nelson Mandela Day, non-profit organisation (NPO) A Pome Mental Illness Advocacy will be donating socks to the children of Ekujabuleni Children’s Home in Edendale. The organisation started a sock collection drive at the end of May and since then they have collected enough socks for all the children at the school. The organisation’s founder, Ayanda Mavundla, said this is their first Nelson Mandela Day initiative as the organisation was only established late last year.Speaking to Echo, she said this is something special for them, especially because they are doing it for the children.“We love children and they are very close to our hearts, that is why we decided to spend this day with them. “Nelson Mandela also loved children and we believe he would be happy if we do something for them. They are our future leaders and we need to take care of them.“When we visited the school in May this year, as part of my birthday celebration, I noticed that they were in need of socks so that is why we started the drive to help them as part of our Nelson Mandela Day initiative,” she said.Mavundla added that they are planning on adopting the school because they believe that there is a lot that they can do for the children.The NPO’s main aim is to raise awareness about mental disorders and help people who are suffering from depression by uplifting them and finding a way for them to get professional help.
