Childline KZN operations manager Adeshini Naicker said organisations go all-out for Mandela Day.

“As a result, these organisations become inundated with items as well as perishables. There are often up to five different corporates visiting the same organisations. And while these organisations welcome these visits, they are often left with a massive amount of perishables,” said Naicker.

“An active difference would be if each person donated R67 to an NGO or charity of their choice on Mandela Day, this would go a long way because small donations have the potential to drastically improve an individual’s quality of life.”
