Are you a plumber; a painter; have clothes, appliances and food to donate? Then you are the person that we are looking for as we hope to make a difference and change the lives of the beneficiaries at the Freda Hartley Shelter for Destitute Women and Children this Mandela Day on 18 July 2016.
In keeping up with the spirit of South Africa’s iconic struggle hero Nelson Mandela; Glasshouse Communication Management is challenging those who are capable to help give back to those in need – and all it will take is just 67 minutes of your time to make a significant impact on the lives of others.
Your organisation can help Frida Hartley through contributions towards repairing the kitchen ceiling, getting a functional communal fridge, extra cots for the children or providing an efficient heating system for the crèche- among other things.
There is a need- now more than ever, for sustainable solutions to the challenges faced by the less fortunate. Your contribution has the power to transform the world and make an impact in the process.
Mandela set the challenge for South Africans and global community to empathise with the less fortunate by giving 67 minutes and more of our time to help those in need and bring meaningful change into their lives. It is not only about the day, but making every day a Mandela Day.
The Frida Hartley Shelter for Destitute Women and Children, situated in Bellevue, currently houses 14 children from four weeks to seven years of age and a mixture of 20 women. The shelter needs R 50 000 a month to cover all living expenses.
Cheryl Hlabane, the manager of the Frida Hartley Shelter for Destitute Women and Children called on those looking to make a difference this Mandela day to spare a thought for the children who have to share cot beds or the go without carpeting on the cement floor in cold or rainy conditions.
“Despite their challenges, the shelter is proud of the women who have come through its doors destitute and vulnerable. More than 75% have become actively employed members of society by offering classes in life coaching, job skills training, skills development and basic computer training,” says Hlabane.
The Glasshouse Committee has agreed to co-ordinate the efforts and fundraising. Please contact Nkhensani Moyane for more information on: +27 11 6469992 or firstname.lastname@example.org
