National Museum project for Mandela Day

Every year, as its Mandela Day Project, the National Museum selects a local charity organisation to support.  This year the Museum donated a variety of articles to Sunflower Children’s Hospice, which cares for children with incurable and life-threatening diseases.  Apart from the more-or-less 15 patients staying at the hospice, the staff of Sunflower Children’s Hospice also cares for more than 300 children in the community. 

On 22 July the director and some of the staff of the Museum handed over a donation of nappies, toiletries, toys, clothes, and new mattresses for all the cots.  As part of the festivities, a song and dance group from the Museum entertained the children. Cupcakes, balloons and “sunflower hands” were also distributed .
