Club Travel staff rallied behind Mandela Day 2014 and the “67 Blankets for Madiba” campaign by using nearly 50km of wool to craft blankets, which were auctioned and the money used to buy 67 winter warming blankets for abused women and their children at the Sisters Incorporated shelter in Kenilworth.
Sisters Incorporated provides full board and lodging, three meals a day, clothing, toiletries and bedding. They empower the women in their care through skills training and support by operating a full-time crèche for their children. They also help the women to find employment and access legal assistance as well as medical care.
“A heartfelt thank you to Club Travel for blessing us on this Mandela Day. You have helped us to assist the many woman and children and victims of domestic violence, who live at our shelter. From our staff, thank you for holding our arms up!” said Linda Fugard, Manager at Sisters Incorporated.
