“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”Nelson Mandela

 This year Savage Jooste and Adams (“SJA”) supported SA Cares for Life with our annual Mandela Day Project, which we decided to combine with our annual Staff Spring Day celebrated on 1 September 2023. Our own staff and even some of our valued clients and counsel all participated in donating food, clothing, toys, toiletries and baby products, etc. towards this cause.

SJA also donated R 40,000.00 towards SA Cares for Life’s food security programme (Veg Project), which means they can now add a few more greenhouse tunnels to their project in order to grow their own vegetables to support the community.  This project not only feeds the community but also helps to create job opportunities for those without an income.

SA Cares for Life’s key focus areas are:

  • Human Trafficking;
  • Rape Crisis;
  • Woman Abuse;
  • Health;
  • Community Development;
  • Water and Sanitation;
  • Poverty Alleviation;
  • Education;
  • Orphan Care;
  • Place of Safety;
  • Drug Abuse; and
  • Welfare.

Their food security programme has thus far fed 120 000 families, assisted 5000 children with their education, saved 620 children and provided 1500 families with clean running water.

We at SJA are extremely proud to be part of such a wonderful initiative.

“And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same” – Nelson Mandela
