“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela 

The message behind Mandela Day is simple – each individual has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better.

We don't have to go to prison for our beliefs or become president. We can do something much smaller ... something that takes just 67 minutes ... and still make a positive difference.

Please join us on Friday 17 July (we will not be open to visitors on Saturday 18 July) between the hours of 09h00-15h00 for your 67 minutes. Your visit will mean so much to our special residents. And if you can – please bring a pair of shoes with you for one or more of them. We need cross trainer type shoes in sizes 5-7 (female) and 6-8 (male) in dark colours please.

While you're here, leave your handprint on our canvas banner and enjoy a hotdog or delicious cup of hot chocolate, on sale at our stalls.

If you can't make it on the day, you can still do your bit for Mandela Day by donating R67, R167, R267 or more towards the cost of caring for our special angels.

Some of them may not understand who Nelson Mandela was. But we know that he had a special place in his heart for children. And, regardless of their physical age, our residents are all childlike in their intellectual capacity and their innocence.

They depend on us for 24 hour care and protection – and we in turn depend on kind people like you for the funds we need to provide it.

So please will you consider making a donation online now. Your gift – large or small – helps ensure that our 'family' of 300 very special children and adults will always have a place to call home.

Thank you and may God bless you.
