The kindness of Klerksdorp’s Jewish women

  • CommunityKlerksdorpMandelaDay
A small group of Jewish women in Klerksdorp used a monetary donation to pay it forward in anticipation of Mandela Day on 18 July. They bought wool with the money they’d received and distributed the balls of wool among themselves in order to knit blankets. A total of 36 warm blankets were created.

On Mandela Day last week, these women took the blankets to the Daphne Lee Centre for the Disabled. So thrilled was one of the centre’s residents, he could not stop hugging his newly acquired blanket. What a special mitzvah this was for the group.

In addition to handing out the blankets, the women made sandwiches out of 40 loaves of bread and handed them out to needy people around town.
