Mandela Day is celebrated on July 18, it's not just a day for South Africans, but also adopted by the United Nations as an annual international day to celebrate and continue the legacy of Nelson Mandela. It is more than a celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy; it is a global movement to take his life’s work into a new era.
As South Africans we embrace the chance to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s life for the month of July.
Using Nelson Mandela’s own words: “It’s in your hands to make the world a better place.”
Every family will receive a Liberty Compassion Grocery Bag with a shopping list.
As a family or a Life Group or a Dream Team fill the bag with the groceries and then bring the full grocery bag back to churh and exchange it for an empty grocery bag.

Safe and Sound would love assistance with a donations of 60 Trays of seedlings (40 per tray) and/or 20 sets of Training Manuals (R700 per set)
The ECD sites plant the seedling for their own gardens, partly for education but also for food sustainability and income.
The Training manuals are for Level 4 learners that often can't afford the training manuals, so they borrow from Safe and Sound, but this is not ideal. Supplying enrolled learners with manuals will greatly enhance their training experience, would be invaluable as a resource for future qualifications and would impact self-esteem significantly.
