The blessing of being able to make every day Mandela Day is a privilege for only a few of us. Being able to make a difference when you can is within the grasp of every human being. We generally celebrate this ability on the birthday of a great man who was a massive advocate for the rights of the less fortunate. Nelson Mandela inspired a nation, a world and a number of individuals in unique ways.
The concept adopted on this day (18th July) is to provide 67 minutes of your time to assist those in need. We hope you will see it in your heart to choose our patients, your community… those with few days left to live. Our patients and our Hospice has a number of needs, we are also open to all and any suggestions you may want to add to the projects available. Have a look below and feel free to call and discuss with us before the day to arrange with you and your team.
Groceries & ToiletriesMany patients are on very powerful drugs and these need to be taken with food. Being unable to afford the food, complications can be caused and so we try to provide food for them. Any nonperishable food is always welcome, as are toiletries to maintain a level of hygiene. Set your budget and bring us some relief?

We have recently re-painted some areas, and some don't need repainting just a good scrubbing with some sugar soap. Buy a bag of soap on your way in and bring a brush we waiting for your help...

Coffee Bar Cupboard ChaosHelp us to replace the cupboards in the Coffee Bar. These cupboards are very old and have become unhygienic as the chipboard is crumbling. We are blessed with volunteers who come in daily to prepare small light lunches for the visitors and staff. Usually salads, toasted sarmies and the like. The cupboards in this area need to be replaced as they have lived a long and hard life. Help us to project manage this project for Mandela Day?
