South Africa, partners celebrate Mandela in Lagos
South African Consulate in Lagos in partnership with Sasol Nigeria and Shoprite recently marked this year’s Mandela Day celebration with donation of gifts to Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted Children and the Heart of Gold Children’s Hospice in Lagos.
Celebrating the legacies of the legendary icon during the week, volunteers from the South African Consulate in Lagos and the partners donated numerous educational and food items to the school and hospice.
Speaking on this donation, Country Manager for Sasol, Mr Mlandzeni Boyce, said, her firm has adopted the idea of providing for the school as its Corporate Social responsibility.
“The adoption of Pacelli School for the Blind as part of our social corporate responsibility has culminated into a number of projects including the introduction of computers to aid children learning in the school,” he disclosed.
Responding to the gesture, Sister Jane, Principal of Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted Children expressed gratitude to the South African delegates and business partners for visiting the home and lauded the contributions of Sasol over the years.
“We are lucky and indeed grateful to have you here. We thank Sasol for the computers and the software, which has been very helpful for our effective operations in this home. We appreciate everyone for coming, and please continue to visit us here,” she said.
Also at the Heart of Gold Children’s Hospice, the delegation donated various items and expressed its continuous commitment to supporting the Hospice, which is managed and owned by Mrs. Laja Adedoyin.
“I know Shoprite and Sasol; they have been very supportive. Shoprite vouchers has been a saving grace most times,” Mrs. Adedoyin noted.
