Mandela Day 2021: One Hand can Feed Another

Dear Harfield Village Residents,

We are living in tragic, heartbreaking times. Our mental health is being seriously challenged. May these times be a watershed, a chance to rebuild a better society for all.  I would hope that being as resilient as we are, we can see the goodness in South Africans shining through.  For me, I see no option.  SA is my home and I am ready to do my bit to make it better.  As we honour Mandela on the 18th July,  let us do our bit to help those who are less fortunate. 
The theme for 2021 is: One Hand can Feed Another.

In times of tragedy, look for the helpers and the good news stories too!

Another great initiative …
From Rowen Ravera-Bauer, Strategic Partnership Development Manager, U-turn
“For our Mandela Day Clothing Drive, we’re asking people to give their previously loved clothing a new life, while providing a new life for people leaving the streets. The donated clothing is sold in charity shops, which are training grounds that provide sheltered employment to our third and final phase champions before the graduate into independent employment.” http://homeless.org.za/mandeladay

It is at times like these that we really appreciate and value all those entities who are working hard to keep us safe and secure.  Thanks to SAPS, local Law Enforcement, Fidelity-ADT, private security companies, Neighbour Hood watches and volunteers for all the energy and hours they are working to ensure calm remains.
