Individuals, churches and organizations take part in doing or helping the less fortunate people where they donate be it food or clothes even time in Nelson Mandela name.
“That is exactly what inspires the Christian church group called Healing Mercy choristers (EMSENI) from Embalenhle to identify schools and old age peoples homes that they visit and planning to visit during this Mandela Month (July).
They hand out Sanitary Towels to the girls and other things to young school children, just to emphasize that not even one child should miss a day in the school calendar.” Said the group spoke’s person Mr Bafana Mbatha.
Thursday 11 July 2019, they took time to visit Thomas Nhlabathi High School in Embalenhle to motivate, sing and hand out Sanitary Towels to girl children and it was a very prestigious event attended by The Bulletin. The event left many school children motivated and revived.
