Jones Lang LaSalle participates in Mandela Day


Jones Lang LaSalle South Africa recently participated in Nelson Mandela Day on the 18th of July by spending the day with the babies and toddlers of Impilo Orphanage in Fairvale.

 

This internationally recognised day, encourages people to spend 67 minutes of their time or more in helping or assisting the less fortunate in honour of Nelson Mandela’s 67 years of service to humanity.

 

Jones Lang LaSalle employees arrived equipped with baby wipes, baby food, formula, nappies and clothing for the children. The team showed their softer side as they played with the babies and helped change their nappies.

 

Impilo was started by two social workers who were unhappy about the long delays sometimes experienced in finding permanent families for needy babies. They established a nursery as a place of safety in their Orange Grove offices, and opened its doors to babies on 1st November 2003. They also worked in partnership with The Love of Christ Ministries (TLC) to place babies being cared for at TLC.

 

Jones Lang LaSalle South Africa commends Impilo Orphanage for the admirable work they do in looking after abandoned babies and toddlers and finding them adoptive homes.
