Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela said: “We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands to make a difference”.

As you are aware, we have arranged to give 100 children from the Alexander Orphanage a party on Sunday 21 July.

We are still short of funds and ask that you please make a generous donation to the Bet David bank account to cover these costs. (Ref: Surname/Mandela Day). We would like to thank all those congregants for the donations that have already been received.
