ONE HEALTH on MANDELA DAY 18 JULY 2013

MandelaDayFlyer (2)The Animal Rescue Organisation will be hosting “ONE HEALTH ON MANDELA DAY” on the 18 July 2013 from 9am – 12 at our Head Quarters in Ottery.

This project is all encompassing as it includes animal healthcare, human healthcare and environmental sustainability. We have partnered with Phillipi SAPS and the Lotus River Health Clinic to make this day a success.

Community members are invited on the day, we plan to host a litter clean up and on completion we would like to serve each member from the surrounding informal settlement / area a cup of soup and bread as well as provide every animal treated with a gift.

Should the public wish to get involved, please contact Jessica Perrins 021 396 5511.

We are in need of volunteers to:

  • Contribute towards the soup initiative – making soup prior to the event, serving soup on the day
  • Clean Up – split into teams of 4 and clean the surrounding community
  • Corporates can do collection drives – blankets, pet food, collars and leads, childrens clothing, toys

Do your bit for Mandela Day – if you cannot volunteer your time, donate R67 towards this initiative!

I look forward to reporting back on what we hope to be a very successful event and the first of many ‘ONE HEALTH’ days to come.

Until next time,

Jess
