Mandela Day- the 18th of July- is more than just an occasion. It is a celebration of the legacy of Madiba, a chance for us all to honour his life and the cause for which he spent it, an opportunity to look back on the struggle of our nation with pride and look forward to the bright future with optimism and hope. On the 18th of July, we join hands in memoriam to better ourselves and our country, and to carry on Nelson Mandela’s legacy.
The Johnson’s Baby Healthy Skin Project team spent their 67 minutes for Mandela cleaning up Sinothando Day Care in Diepsloot. The team also prepared a warm meal for the children and gifted the Day care with books, educational posters, chairs, toys and Johnson’s Baby products. Please see attached image.
