Last week, we launched the Cellulant day of Service in commemoration of the one year anniversary of our Brave Six.
Teams from Cellulant markets across Africa joined our Kenya team to mark January 15th by celebrating the lives of our brothers with acts of service in the communities where young and vulnerable children of different ages are sheltered.
By dedicating this day to acts of service to mark the legacy of the Brave 6, Cellulanters can, every year, continue to impart the values, dreams and accomplishments that made the 6 Heroes to a young generation of Africans whilst serving them. The day will also be a way for us to give back to the communities that we serve in recognition of their inspiration in pushing us to find the best possible solutions to our everyday challenges as Africans.
On Wednesday 15th January, our teams visited different children’s homes where they delivered food items, clothing and other amenities. They also spent the day serving the children, singing, sharing stories of the Brave 6 and celebrating life and its blessings.
Cellulant Malawi at Open Arms Orphanage
Our Malawi team visited Open Arms Orphanage, a nonprofit organization based in Southern Malawi that provides refuge to children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic. It is the only organisation in the region able to feed, house and care for newborns and infants and support their return to their communities.
Cellulant Botswana at Princess Marina Hospital
Our Botswana team visited the Princess Marina Hospital located in the capital, Gaborone- a provincial government-funded and the largest referral hospital in Botswana. Our team visited the Neo-Natal ward for newborn abandoned babies.
Cellulant Ghana at Chance for Children Orphanage
Our Ghana team led by the Country Manager Max Dodd spent the day at Chance for Children Orphanage – an Accra based centre that has been offering a home to former street children since 2002.
Cellulant Zambia at House of Moses Children’s Home
Our Zambia visited House of Moses children’s home- a Christian based baby rescue centre based in Lusaka and established in 2000 with a unique program that provides nursing care to premature and high-risk infants. The home takes in babies aged between 0-2yrs.
Cellulant Zimbabwe Hold Tree Planting Ceremony
Our Zimbabwe Team chose to mark this day by planting trees to symbolise life at its inception as they took time to observe a moment of silence in reflection.
