The annual Mandela Day was
once again celebrated with great success. FMU showed its
commitment by becoming involved in two activities within
the two communities.
R Adm (JG) R.S Ndabambi and Capt Barnard position the
wooden benches in the church
The first outreach was to a
church in Gugulethu for whom benches were made which was
much needed. This event saw R Adm (JG) R.S. Ndabambi
with his staff and the Acting Officer Commanding of FMU
(Cdr Durr) attending the handing over of these benches
to the church.
Once the above activity was
done Cdr Durr and his team went over to the Hilltop
Educare Centre in Da Gama Park where another group was
busy painting the fence of the crèche. One member
who was involved in the painting openly said that he
does not only do it because it is Mandela Day but he
loves doing it. This just goes to show the commitment of
members to do well unto others.
The wooden benches were made by FMU
The appreciations at both
these events were highly visible. These events have
really shown the eagerness of FMU in making a difference
in the lives of people.
