Mandela Day with a Difference

Mandela Day with a Difference

Personal message

Mandela Day @ Lowveld Vet:
Since 2014 Lowveld Vet celebrated Mandela Day through offering free spaying, neutering and vaccination services to our local impoverished communities with the support of our donors.  This year, however, due to the impact of Covid-19 on donations received, as well as the financial pressure experienced by pet owners, we have shifted our focus to also provide food to these families' children and their pets.  Families are surrendering their pets to shelters or their pets are being euthanized due to the financial implications of the pandemic.
Children whose worlds have already been turned upside down, now have to part with their beloved companions as well...
This year, therefore, we are embarking on our "Mandela Day with a Difference" campaign in partnership with Pediatric Care Africa.  This non-profit organization normally provides medical care to children whose families cannot afford it, but due to the pandemic also became involved with providing food to hundreds of families. 
Any donations received will be used to supplement existing food supplies and medical care to children in need with the spaying and neutering of their pets and the provision of pet food.  The free sterilization of pets belonging to families in financial distress is a key measure in the prevention of unwanted future litters from suffering and flooding shelters.
Any support, whether monetary or through the donation of food items, on or before Mandela Day on 18 July 2020, will assist us greatly in providing some additional relief to these destitute families and, in particular, the children and their pets.

We are a registered medical charity that assist poor children with medical treatment and surgeries. We have recently launched our 1000 surgeries for babies and children campaign.

#HELPMYOP 1000 surgeries for 1000 children.

As part of our mandate we also  supply food to starving children.

We respond to disasters in South Africa and neighbouring countries, for example we assisted victims of cyclone Idai in Mozambique with medical treatment, conducted 16 surgeries, donated and delivered 16 tons of food and 3 tons of clothing.
