Mandela Day 18 July 2015


It was Nelson Mandela that said, “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”.

On 18 July each year we celebrate Nelson Mandela’s legacy; and in no better way than to honour his life’s work to make a difference to change the world for the better.

Mandela Day is a global call to action with the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact.

The Mandela Day campaign message is: “Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We’re asking you to start with 67 minutes.”

Health Staff had the privilege of sharing their 67 minutes upgrading the children’s ward at New Somerset Hospital in Cape Town. This project was kick-started on 9 July 2015 with the repainting of the children’s ward, followed by a muralist to work her magic with images to create love and warmth. The Health Staff team are extremely grateful to have been able to give their 67 minutes for Mandela Day by colouring in various pictures on the walls of the Children’s ward.

Health Staff’s mission is to provide the most suited, qualified and passionate staff to the medical industry with the purpose of enriching the lives of those in need in our communities. Our team has a great compassion for the children of South Africa.


Health Staff is excited to be part of giving back to the community on Mandela day. Special thanks to the people that made this possible: Chantelle the Mural Artist from Mural wall Art, Donavon at Credo Paints and Midas Earthcote TygervalleyMoulded ImagesCredo PaintersMidas
