info4africa celebrates Mandela Day
info4africa staffers spent their 67 Mandela Day minutes visiting residents of the Tuinsig Centre for the Aged.

Staff at info4africa, a self-funded centre within UKZN’s School of Applied Human Sciences, celebrated Nelson Mandela Day by spending 67 minutes visiting residents at the Tuinsig Centre for the Aged. 

Info4africa Director, Ms Debbie Heustice, said: ‘On the day when we as a nation look to celebrate the service given by Madiba, we follow his call to spend 67 minutes serving others. Connecting communities through service is exactly what info4africa strives to do. 

‘Thanks to the generous donation of Mr Pravesh Choonilall of Queensmead Spar, whose team provided a beautiful cake, the participants were able to enjoy an afternoon full of food, laughter, and music.’ 

Heustice and Operations Manager, Ms Dianne Merchant, enlisted the help of their two young sons and a friend who entertained the residents with a live music performance.  

Other sponsors of the event included Mr Malcolm Vishwanathan of Davenport Checkers who provided chocolate and small gift bags and Ms Lucy Venter of African Extracts who provided specialty Rooibos creams for the tenants and a gift hamper was given to the winner of a lucky draw.  

Info4africa creates and maintains a nationwide database and directory of health and wellbeing service care providers. Visit www.info4africa.org.za for more information.
