School Aid, Blood Donation to Mark #MandelaDay in South Africa

The Department of Science and Technology has announced plans to assist underprivileged schools by donating computers and science laboratory equipment while the National Blood Service will host blood donation sites at hundreds of locations across the country. These and other deeds are meant to honour former statesman Nelson Mandela on his birthday on the 18th of July.

"Every year on 18 July, people around the globe do their bit in support of Mandela Day to make the world a better place," Silungile Mlambo of the South African National Blood Service said.
