“Nelson Mandela’s unwavering dedication to the growth and progression of South Africa serves as an inspiration for this outreach. Mandela Day, celebrated annually on July 18, encourages individuals and organisations to contribute to their communities and make a positive impact. The collaboration between Riverside CID, Childline Mpumalanga, and its partners is a testament to the commitment of these organisations to follow in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela and create a brighter future for all,” Prim said.
“We believe in the power of collective action and how it can transform lives. By joining forces with Childline Mpumalanga and our valued partners, we supported the children at the SOS Village Home, reflecting Mandela’s vision of a united and caring society.”
The contributions from HL Hall and Sons Properties, Southern Sun Mbombela, Kiaat Hospital, Sorbet Nelspruit, NPE Construction, Green Guru Solutions, Buy Local, Nashua and Emnotweni Casino were invaluable and played a pivotal role in making the day unforgettable for the children.
“We are so thankful for their donations of food, toys, and treats as it enabled us to bring smiles to the children’s faces and also provide them with a sense of love and belonging,” Prim concluded.
This outreach embodies the spirit of togetherness, compassion, and progress that Nelson Mandela envisioned for South Africa. The Riverside CID, in alignment with its mission to enhance the quality of life in the community, strives to inspire others to join in building a brighter future for the children and the nation as a whole.
