On account of Mandela Day, Unique Group’s office in Cape Town, South Africa enthusiastically participated by making 144 sandwiches for two local beneficiaries,namely, the Linawo Children’s Home and Garden Village Primary School.
We, as a team, contributed to this initiative and made sandwiches in just over 1.5 hours. It was great fun whilst knowing we were contributing to a good cause.
The idea of Mandela Day was inspired by Nelson Mandela at his 90th birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park in 2008. The United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009, recognising Mandela’s "values and his dedication to the service of humanity" and acknowledging his contribution "to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world."
