“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela
This Mandela Month, CAF Southern African (CAFSA) was honoured to support Sasol with their #SasolforGood volunteering activities across the country, which took place on Thursday 14 July, ahead of Nelson Mandela Day today, 18 July 2022.
This was a reintroduction of in-person volunteering at Sasol – the first since the advent of COVID-19 – with Rise Against Hunger meal-packing activations at five locations across South Africa.
Almost 800 Sasol employees took part at sites in Sasolburg, Secunda, Sasol Place, Ekandustria and KwaZulu-Natal and the volunteers managed to pack over 119880 nutritious meal packs, which will provide 500 children with five meals a week for a year.
The #SasolforGood team also did maintenance at Mpohade Early Childhood Development centre in Zamdela, and Thorisong Primary School in eMbalenlhe.
Aligned with Nelson Mandela Month, these events signified Sasol’s ongoing care as champions for good. Not only on Mandela Day, but every day, as employees connect to social causes through their Sasol for Good platform.
CAFSA was proud to play a part in this important and meaningful work.
