67 Minutes for Mandela Day

Shiraz Ladies Circle No 8 attended a volunteer food packing event held by Stop Hunger Now.

Stop Hunger Now’s meal packing programme is a volunteer-based effort through which participants package high protein, dehydrated meals for use in crisis situations. With the help of friends and family, Shiraz packed 13 boxes (36 packs per box) in 67 minutes, equeling to 2808 disadvantaged children and adults being fed one meal.

Pictured are Leanne Stander (Vice Chairman), Lisa Schlechter (President, Ladies Circle South Africa and member of Shiraz) and Judy Theunissen (Immediate Past Chairman) with some of the boxed packed on the day.
