Making an early start on their Mandela Day community service project, RamsayMedia’s Johannesburg and Cape Town staff downed tools on Friday, 15 July to assemble 200 comfort packs for young rape victims. The brightly coloured packs were handed over at the end of the day to representatives of the SAPS Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Units and Matla a Bana.

RamsayMedia has adopted Matla a Bana as its annual Mandela Day initiative by packing and donating these packs for child-abuse victims. Last year RamsayMedia donated 150 packs and the team was challenged to aid more children this time around. Financial contributions came from the staff, the company and the Norton Ramsay Foundation (a trust established by the previous chairman), while Ackermans, Easywear and Hospitality Suite were quick to provide facecloths, soap and underwear to the worthy cause.

Staff enthusiastically made their way down the assembly line, filling the bags before writing a personal message on each one. These were handed over at the end of the day, ready for distribution on Mandela’s birthday.

Thank you to Sandy and the RamsayMedia staff for this great support!
