Mandela Day food parcel initiative has begun!
“The Mandela Day food parcel initiative has kicked-off with the distribution of over 17 000 food parcels to primary school learners in Alexandra Township, near Johannesburg.
The Food Parcel Project is part of a three year partnership with the Department of Basic Education, Tiger Brands and the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
The initiative aims to contribute towards the eradication of food insecurity that affects learners and sustains them during the long school holidays.”
18 July 2014 will be the first Mandela Day that South Africa will celebrate without Mandela himself. However, it is important days such as this one, that keep him alive in spirit.
