The Department of Student Residence Affairs on UKZN’s Edgewood campus recently hosted a fun-filled and educational day at the 1000 Hills Community Helpers Centre in Inchanga to commemorate Mandela Day.

The UKZN delegation of 30, included both postgraduate students and residence staff.

About 160 children attended the fun day which included song, dance, poetry and painting. The 70 volunteers at the Centre got involved in a Mandela quiz and were treated to a braai in appreciation of their continued support for the Centre and the more than 500 children they look after on a daily basis. 

The UKZN delegation handed over a donation of much needed items from the centre’s wish submitted prior the day.

The home welcomed this support and hopes for continued support from UKZN in coming years.
