Nelson Mandela International Day or Mandela Day as it has come to be called provides a unique opportunity for the global community to offer humanitarian aid to honour the life and legacy of the late Nelson Mandela ideally for 67 minutes on or around that day.

As part of our contribution, Covid permitting, the GO! & Express team will be painting and decorating a room at Canaan Care Centre.

This ties in with the Fit For Logan campaign of which we are sole media sponsors as we strive to assist in raising funds towards Logan Bartle’s medical expenses, simultaneously creating awareness about cerebral palsy.

After our recent visit to the centre, we were able to get a better understanding of the cognitive capabilities of the children as well as how the enhancement of a room would benefit them.

Altogether, there are 9 bedrooms as well as a lounge day room, outdoor area, training room, storage area and staff room that would benefit from a personal touch.

Though six of the rooms have been adopted, other corporates are welcome to come on board and adopt the other available ones.

Our team will be redecorating a room that belongs to 2 girls who have very low cognitive abilities and we have been advised to keep the décor simple.

Though we already have some plans in mind, we are inviting businesses and private individuals to partner with us as part of their own 67 minutes as we meet the needs suggested such as pleather or leather bean bags, curtains, cupboard handles, rugs, duvets and more.
