The ACTION team celebrates Mandela Day

On Friday 19th July, the ACTION Support Centre, in partnership with Lancet Laboratories, Jozi FM and City of Johannesburg rolled up their sleeves to go do community service at the Golden Ark Drop in Centre in Mzimhlophe, Soweto. This was done in honour of the internationally celebrated Mandela Day. The ACTION team and other partners assisted in the renovations of the Centre which included painting, gardening, cleaning and installing new shelves and a new play area for the kids. The Golden Ark Drop in Centre caters for over 180 destitute children by providing them with a meal before and after school, assisting them with homework and childhood development, as well as providing temporary shelter. We, as the ACTION team, felt very honoured and privileged to be part of this day and make a small difference to the children of the Golden Ark Drop in Centre. We look forward to celebrating Mandela Day next year and trust that our partners, the ACTION Support Team and local peace committees will join us in continuing the legacy of the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela.
