Nelson Mandela Day

Our 67 minutes on Mandela Day

On Saturday 17 July the Lions descended on Sterkfontein Hospital to spend a busy two hours at ward 18.

We sponsored items like compost, gardening tools and standard roses and helped the other volunteers to plant the roses and to paint the mural on one wall of the ward.

Apart from the fun of helping to beautify the area, we also had the opportunity to meet people from the top management at the hospital. This type of contact will certainly make it easier for us to organise our monthly drive to the botanical garden with the patients.

We were fortunate in that it was a sparkling, sunny day and not cold at all. It was a great outing!

    This was such a fun, and rewarding project. Mandela day should be a launching pad for every day!
