Cure Day Hospitals lives out our “C” for Compassion in our Cure values and proudly participate yearly in various community initiatives for Mandela Day. The theme for Mandela Day this year is “do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are” and we have done just that. This year we have embarked on a school shoe donation drive on a large scale. We are not only contributing to our learners in need of school shoes. Still, we are helping our planet by recycling various used plastic items into school shoes, that would ordinarily be discarded as waste.
We have donated close to 2000 pairs of shoes to schools in need around the country which include naming but a few Joe Solomon Primary School, False Bay Primary School, Ndima Primary School, Mahube Valley Primary School, Mshuluzani Mayisela Primary School, Cradle of Hope, Mpumelelo Primary School, Mbekweni Primary School, Legora primary school at Mamelodi, Tlhasedi primary school in Hebron, Mshuluzane Mayisela Primary school in Bronkhortspruit, Salvation Army, House of Peace, Rata Social Services Pretoria, Laerskool Wonderboom, Ditshego House of Laughter, Olievenhoutbosch Christian School, Hannah Charity, Laerskool / Primary School Hermanstad, Siboniwe Primary School, Mogale Primary School, and we are still delivering more shoes throughout the year.
We realise the importance of education and the need for learners to be as equipped to learn as possible, especially with basic needs like the comfort of school shoes. Our dream was to provide as many school shoes to children in need countrywide and we achieved this with generous donations from our hospital staff, stakeholders, suppliers, doctors, and patients.
