Each year, on Nelson Mandela’s birthday - 18 July, the Mandela Foundation asks people around the world to devote at least 67 minutes of their time to a community service activity. This year, in celebration of Madiba’s birthday, SAEON’s environmental monitor Gerald Nkwinika (in wheelchair), volunteered his services at the Lulekani church soup kitchen (nutrition programme) to hand out sandwiches and juice to the children.
