Langeberg dedicates and demonstrates '67 Minutes of Madiba Day'

 

A group of municipal officials from the Langeberg Municipality visited various places in the Langeberg Region on Friday 17 July (2015) with gift bags, clothing, food and something sweet in the aim of brightening the day of the old, young and needy.

This visitation forms part of their contribution to the '67 Minutes of Madiba Day' celebrations.

 

The officials, who each created a unique gift bag wrapped with a name tag of someone they identified in the area, used their personal funds to finance this special occasion.

This special day is an annual initiative which inspires the Langeberg Municipality's Department of Strategy and Social Development to implement the core believes of Madiba Day- by making a difference in the community.

More than 50 unique boxes, filled with items such as spray, lotion, cups, toothpaste, towels, face cloths and much much more,  were handed out to the residents of Lingelihle Old Age Home in Zolani.

The team of officials also travelled to the Thusong Centre in Robertson where they provided warm soup and bread to a group of hungry children in the area.

Thereafter, a stop was made in Nkqubela where they handed out cookies, sweets and chocolates to a long line of children, craving for something sweet. In this same area, clothes and shoes were given to those in need. All the people who received something were extremely grateful and overwhelmed by the generosity of the officials, and the spirit of the day.

Lastly, the team made their way to Le Roux Old Age Home where they provided each resident with a bright pink cupcake to add with their delicious lunch meal.

According to the Nelson Mandela Foundation: "The celebration of Mandela Day aims to serve as a global call to action for people to "recognise their individual power to make an imprint and help change the world for the better."
