The 18th of July is a day very close to all South African hearts, and now our Shamoun family too. It’s the day we celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela. It is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy. It is a global movement to honour his life’s work and act to change the world for the better. It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said that “it is in your hands now”.
The point of the day is to give back to those in need. Which our Shamouner’s proudly did! This year we decided to help the Auckland city mission which is a organisation that helps feed, clothe and look after those in need. We donated blankets and made sandwiches and took apples to feed over 100 people.
