The Do More Foundation visited the Boitekong Protective Workshop in Batho in Mangaung as part of their 67 minutes for Mandela.

Boitekong Protective Workshop is a day care centre which falls under the non-governmental organisation Southern Free State Mental Health. They look after 45 people with intellectual disabilities such as mental health and psychiatric illnesses.

They spend their days learning to do crafts from recyclable materials, including handbags and eco-furniture.

The day care provides the beneficiaries with a breakfast of bread and tea every morning, however they can only cook them a full meal twice a week.

The Do More Foundation, Founded by RCL Foods, was recently established  to “do more” for the most vulnerable members of society by collaborating with like-minded organisations to ease hunger, support early childhood development and care for animals.

As part of the 67 Minutes for Mandela initiative, they will be providing nearly 7000 nutritious meals to vulnerable children and adults in different communities across the country.

Everyone enjoyed the warm meal.

Boitekong Protective Workshop Manager, Rahaba Malebo, said they were very grateful to the foundation for taking time out to cook and share a meal with the people at the workshop.
