OUR 67 MINUTES TO HONOUR MADIBA
Nelson Mandela Day 2013, saw the inception of our New Corporate Social Investment program - 'African Access Cares'.
To show how we car, we joined with people across the universe to celebrate the 95th birthday of Nelson Mandela.
African Access Cares Team spent their 67 minutes at a children's crche, located next to the Thabo Mbeki informal settlement, close to the Lionpark in Nietgedacht, Johannesburg. 30 AAH Ambassadors took the time to visit the crche. Some brought toys to play with the children, others donated non-perishable food items and blankets. Food was provided and was served by our Ambassadors. Jumping castles were hired to add to the children's experience. Music also played throughout the day and the children's dance moves were a sight to behold! It was a pleasurable and enjoyable day for the children, the staff and our team.
AAH visited this facility in 2011 and provided the crche with cookware to assist them in their daily needs to help feed the children. The revisit is a clear indication of the efforts of AAH to uplift our communities and love our children - a wish of our beloved former president Nelson Mandela.
