MERCY RIDE

Sunday Times - - Front Page -

Bik­ers hail the Nel­son Man­dela statue in front of the Drak­en­stein Cor­rec­tional Cen­tre in Paarl. They came from all over South Africa to ride from the Cape Town Pa­rade to the prison in aid of the Keep a Girl Child in School cam­paign, to pay for san­i­tary pads for the three mil­lion girls who miss school each year in South Africa be­cause they can­not af­ford ba­sic san­i­tary prod­ucts. The ini­tia­tive was that of Bik­ers for Man­dela Day, in part­ner­ship with the Nel­son Man­dela Foun­da­tion.
