This year marks what would have been the centenary birthday celebration of Nelson Mandela. To observe this year’s Mandela Day celebrations, Enterprises University of Pretoria (Enterprises UP) staff once again generously gave their time and donations to Luvuyo Orphanage Home in Soshanguve.

This year’s project was in support of the children and young adults, aged one to 18 who live in, and receive support from the shelter. Much needed items of clothing, toiletries and non-perishable food, toys and school supplies were donated and collected for the orphans being cared for at Luvuyo Home.

The annual Mandela Day celebrations help us to remember the legacy of Nelson Mandela and encourages us all to continue to do the good work that he started. The children and staff of Luvuyo Home received the Enterprises UP delegation with enthusiasm and gratitude. For well over 67 minutes, Enterprises UP staff hosted a braai while entertaining and playing with the young children who were very excited to receive visitors.

The orphanage is a non-profit organisation that supports and houses vulnerable children living in and around Soshanguve. The initiative was a great success and a special thank you is extended to everyone who gave of their time and opened up their wallets to make this special day memorable for the children.
