The essence of Mandela Day – take action, inspire change, and make every day a Mandela Day – is more important than ever before.
This year on Mandela Day, AOM have chosen to take action and pay it forward to Hannah`s Place of Safety in Cape Town, as the work that they do is so very important, and very close to my heart. Hannah`s Place of Safety is an NPO that render services to various departments of Social Development for babies 0-1 years old in need of care and protection.
They render a free of charge service to the (Department of Social Development) caring for children in need of (Care and Protection). The duration of each child’s stay can range between 3-6 months, case dependent. Most of their babies are born from drug addicted parents and Alcohol users, and they also care for babies who have been removed from their families due to circumstances. Visit their website at www.hannahsplaceofsafety.org to learn more.
“Together as a nation, we have the obligation to put sunshine into the hearts of our little ones. They are our precious possessions. They deserve what happiness life can offer.” – Nelson Mandela
A baby is an innocent, fragile being that cannot fend for itself and needs much love and care. Let`s honour Madiba`s memory, legacy and love of children by giving back to the community and those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
