Vredendal Mandela Day 2021

We had a great response to this year’s Mandela Day Fundraiser to gift 3rd Wave Family-Packs to 100 kids and families in Vredendal, a community in the West Coast of Cape Town who are part of the James House Child & Youth Care community.   A special Family-Pack would assist them during the 3rd Wave of the Covid-19 Pandemic. Despite the pandemic being a difficult time for everyone, it is heart-warming that so many donors were willing to help another family, despite their own circumstances.

Each 3rd Wave Family-Pack included a combination of groceries, winter warmers, hygiene items and educational material:

The James House Board, management, staff and beneficiaries of Vredendal have expressed their heartfelt gratitude to all involved. The Family-Packs were well-received with much appreciation and they are forever grateful for the continuous support and donors who make a difference in the lives of the underprivileged communities.

A wonderful collaboration of IAHV, The Nelson Mandela Communitee Youth Center, The Revolution Motor Bikers, The SAI organization and a few community member giving us approximately 50 Volunteers.
Everyone just gelled and worked gracefully on Saturday and Sunday, morning into the night.

Thank you to everyone that clubbed in to put this together.
