Labotec staff decided to take action and rolled up their sleeves to participate in #mandeladay by partnering with the Johannesburg Organisation of Services to the Homeless (JOSH) and the Johannesburg Homelessness Network (JHN) to pack and donate individual hygiene packs for their drop-in centre in Randburg. At this centre, the homeless have access to fulfilling immediate needs such as shower or ablution facilities. The centre also provides social work counselling services, some skills development services and transitional accommodation.
The Labotec truck was also used to deliver a bulk load of Sesli Blankets to the centre.
Mandela Day inspired staff, and it felt good to be of service.
