Spend your Mandela Day with us

13/07/2017

ct apd.jpgNelson Mandela International Day commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. It was launched on his birthday, 18 July, in 2009 via a unanimous decision by the UN General Assembly.

This year the theme is dedicated to fight poverty. (#ACTIONAGAINSTPOVERTY #MANDELADAY)

July is also known as  psycho-social disability awareness month, Bush Radio trainees have decided to dedicate their 67 minutes for Mandela Day to the Cape Town Association for the Physically Disabled.

This will take place on 18 July 2017 at the premises of Cape Town Association for the Physically Disabled where we will clean up the premises by gardening and cleaning rubble. The address is 152 Tarentaal Road, Bridgetown, Cape Town, 7764.

We will also be broadcasting from the event from 12 till 2pm.

We ask that you join us from 10 am. If you would like to give a hand, donate or need more information contact Natasha on 021 448 5450.

Anglican Archbishop Thabo Magoba called on churches, mosques and synagogues to join him in forming a human chain on Thursday (18 July 2013) to commit to the Mandela dream of a united South Africa free from poverty.

He also called on all young people of the Cape to come forward and commit to take up the baton that Madiba’s generation is handing over to them. “This is a time that we must continue to sow the seeds of love and not destruction so that we can give hope to all in our beautiful country,” he said.

“It requires us all to roll up our sleeves and conduct ourselves in a dignified way,” he added.

The Human Chain for Madiba will snake its way from Gugulethu through Athlone to Rondebosch on Mandela Day between 1p.m and 2p.m.

Some of these organisations include the Western Cape Religious Leaders Forum, The Cape Cultural Collective, the Claremont Main Road Mosque, the Gugulethu Advice Office, the Athlone Advice Office and a number of community radio stations.

Some of the Bush Radio trainees and volunteers joined in on the 67 minutes of community activism protest at Parliament, calling for a stop to necklacing and asking parliamentarians to help address the issues of poverty in our communities – an underlying cause of crime.

Bush Radio staff and interns devoted their 67 minutes of work for Mandela Day to St Anne’s Homes on Monday the 18th July 2011. The team spent the morning face painting, story-telling and playing. The children also received soup (kindly donated by Cyrildene Fisher) and party packets at the end of the morning.

The team enjoyed themselves, and have signed on to to arrange even more of these activities in future.
