We celebrate Mandela Day on 18 July each year – the day of the late Nelson Mandela’s birthday, and a day to honour his legacy and commit 67 minutes of our time to uplifting those around us.

This year we are doing Mandela Day with a difference…Due to Covid restrictions and lockdown, we we will be hosting a drive-by Mandela Day campaign in the community of 7de Laan in Strandfontein.


Individuals or companies are invited to collect food items and drop them off in the following 67-minute timeslots:

10h00, 12h00, 14h00

You can also make arrangements for us to collect items from your workplace or home – we are happy to do so!


All groceries will be used in our food programme which serves meals to the four informal settlements on Camp Road in Strandfontein. We have served more than 120 000 meals since lockdown started and we remain committed to uplifting and supporting the most vulnerable during this challenging time.


Please note – as a registered nonprofit and Public Benefit organisation with Section 18A status, we are able to issue tax certificates for all donations.
