Wings of Inspiration needs help this Mandela Day

If you are still unsure about what to do for your 67 minutes this Mandela Day, look no further.

Wings of Inspiration, which supports Dorah’s Ark Orphanage in Roodepoort, is inviting you to spend your Mandela Day with them.

The orphanage is a non-profit company (NPC) as well as a non-governmental organisation (NGO), and is dependent on donations from the community.
