Make your 67 Mandela minutes count with Tafta

Tafta residents are all geared up for the organisation’s annual family fun walk, which promises to be a day of fun for participants of all ages.

The Association for the Aged (Tafta) calls on members of the public to make their 67 Mandela minutes count during the month of July by contributing towards the care of the elderly, a cause close to the International icon’s heart.

Options for participation in Tafta’s Mandela Month observations include Tafta’s annual family fun walk on Saturday, 15 July, a contribution towards Tafta’s Winter care kit toiletry collection drive and participation in various activities planned at Tafta’s residential facilities in and around Durban on Mandela Day, 18 July.

Tafta currently accommodates approximately 1,700 elderly who are of sub economic status (reliant solely on the state pension). These residents are often in need of basic toiletries such as toothpaste, soap and adult nappies, creating the need for the toiletry collection drive.

Donations of toiletry items can be made at any of Tafta’s residential facilities, or you can bring along your contribution to its family fun walk event on 15 July.
