Actonville SAPS donates for Mandela Month

100 learners in each school received a hygiene package.

In honour of Mandela Month, Actonville SAPS donated toiletries and sanitary pads to learners at Actonville Primary School, Benoni West School as well as a local créche on July 28.

They delivered care packages to 100 learners at each school.

To further extend their hand, they donated to Solomon Motlana Primary School, in Wattville.

“With assistance from our CPF members and businesses in our community who have generously contributed to this drive, we were able to give back to children in need,” said the Social Crime Prevention coordinator Constable Malindi Lekgau.

She elaborated on how this event wouldn’t be possible without these donations.

When visiting the schools, the donations were set to help the hygiene of the learners.

“We gave the girls sanitary pads and toiletries but did not leave out the boys. They also received toiletries,” Lekgau added.

During the handover, principals of the different schools showed gratitude.

“I am so happy that our school was considered in this gesture of kindness. Some of these children are from disadvantaged backgrounds so gestures like these give our children motivation to come to school,” said the acting principal of Actonville Primary School, Seanego Nalana.

“We are grateful for the donation, some of the girls skip school because of that time of the month. I am glad that will no longer be the case.”
