Nelson Mandela Day
The Staff of MD Accountants & Auditors Inc celebrated Mandela Day by collecting books and donating them to John Nicholson’s children’s library.
In 2005, John, who lives near Lavender Hill, converted his backyard into a library so that children in the area would have a place to read, do homework and play games.
We were thrilled to collect our target figure of 67 books and we are also very proud to know that we have helped make a difference in young people’s lives.
Wishing all our Muslim staff, clients and colleagues Eid Mubarak. And in the spirit of giving, we have made a donation to The Mustadafin Foundation.
– The Mustadafin Foundation
The Mustadafin Foundation was established in 1986 during the Apartheid era. It emerged as a result of political unrest and violence in the Crossroads township. Crossroads, at that time was isolated and violence that erupted was due to faction fighting. It had a devastating effect on the local community, particularly women and children.
