Mpekweni rallied the support of its neighbours, suppliers, friends and family to heed the call for all to do something special for someone less fortunate for Nelson Mandela Day which we accomplished on the 18th July 2011.
Our aim was to raise enough funds to buy 300 blankets for the children of the local community in Benton village.
The response was overwhelming. Mpekweni succeeded in raising enough funds to purchase 720 blankets. A number of our suppliers pledged enough fresh meat and produce as well as disposable eating utensils to feed the entire community present.
With the kind assistance of a number of our staff, suppliers and managers, Mpekweni gathered the Benton community in the local community hall.
A big thank you to all who got involved and celebrated this glorious day of giving with all of us at Mpekweni Beach Resort.
