On Wednesday #MandelaDay, three of the Western Cape’s biggest sports teams, DHL Western Province Rugby, Cape Town City Football Club, and the World Sports Betting Cape Cobras Cricket team, rolled up their sleeves and got dirty in order to honour Nelson Mandela’s legacy to assist the Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) and Habitat for Humanity SA in the Cape Town house-build week from 16 – 20 July 2018.
The three Western Cape sports brands were in Bardale, Mfuleni, 30km from Cape Town on Mandela Day, assisting the Habitat for Humanity SA volunteers and Sbu-Leno Construction with constructing external and internal walls, mixing cement, moving blocks and interacting with the community.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation in partnership with Habitat for Humanity SA and the Department of Human Settlements is honouring Tata Madiba’s legacy by building 100 homes for 100 families across 3 provinces: Western Cape, Gauteng & KwaZulu-Natal.
“We are humbled and proud to stand together with our fellow sports franchises, athletes and Habitat for Humanity SA to honour the values and legacy of Nelson Mandela and to contribute to making a difference in our communities. Given collective will, we all have the power to transform and make a real difference to our communities and people in need. It is a privilege to give a little back today, something we as a Union will strive to do on a continuous basis in whatever way we can.” said Mr Thelo Wakefield President of the WPRFU.
