“We could never have predicted that home knitted and crocheted blankets would be so needed right now in KZN. I’m grateful that our donation is being put into action and helping out in a modest but vital way.”
In early 2022 we, again, showed commitment to 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day by pledging a substantial sponsorship of wool to create blankets.
67 Blankets in partnership with Gift of the Givers were amongst the first organisations to respond to the humanitarian crisis that developed in KwaZulu-Natal in the wake of torrential rainfall and heavy flooding.
The founder of Gift of the Givers, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, has acknowledged that despite all our troubles, frictions and challenges, South Africa is an incredible country where the spirit of Ubuntu always enters the picture.
