Lots of smiles on Mandela’s Day

Natalie Emery

“So what are you doing for Mandela’s Day?” After hearing this question several times, I determined to do something special to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s birthday! What better way than giving underprivileged kids a fun and happy time? We targeted two different institutions in Johannesburg, a HIV orphanage and a boarding school for physically disabled children that we collaborate with weekly. They were adopted as the focus of our program.

Arriba las Manos would like to thank Activated Ministries for its donation of educational books and audio/visual resources. These materials have been an invaluable contribution over the last year to the activities of Arriba las Manos in the impoverished community of Ararca.

Thank you, Activated Ministries, for fulfilling a need for spiritual and emotional encouragement for these seafarers, who are often separated from their loved ones for long periods of time.

Shelly Guild

The compelling play we had both watched, or the meaningful songs that followed?
