Mandela Day 2022

On 18th July, IEDF took the opportunity to give back. We visited the Heaven’s Nest Children’s Home and spent time with the children as well as their caretakers. These beautiful souls were entertained with games, songs and dancing, storytelling, etc.

The motto for Mandela Day 2022 – “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are,” came to the fore as the team from IEDF descended on Heavens Nest Children Home.

Heaven’s Nest, situated in Ottery, was established in 2004 and is an emergency foster facility for young children in need. They provide a safe, caring home for children between the ages of 6 months and 8 years until they can be reunited with their family, placed in foster care, or adopted.

Their mission is “To be a Place of Hope and Care to give Children a foundation to have a better future” and with the IEDF striving to create better Informal Economy Leaders , this was a natural progression to spend our time on Mandela Day, “To do what we can , where we are”.
