Lerato Kganyago is using her birthday to give back to the community. The Metro FM DJ is about to celebrate her birthday on July 22 and has used the month to help the needy.
The media personality introduced her sanitary pads brand, known as Flutter by LKG. She will be donating these pads to women in disadvantaged areas.
The sanitary pads are manufactured by a black female entrepreneur, whose company is run exclusively by black women.
Kganyago has already kicked off her campaign by donating in Hammanskraal, Tshwane. She gave away 200 sanitary pads to a non-profit organisation called Ubuhle be’Ntombi zeNgcuce as part of her 67 minutes for Mandela.
She was accompanied by the Mayor of Ekurhuleni Mzwandile Masina, where they delivered the sanitary pads, food parcels and face masks.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mandela Day is an internationally recognised event and celebrities near and far used the day to share a powerful message with the world. F1 racer Lewis Hamilton said:
"Madiba, there is not a day that goes by that I don’t miss you. Your legacy still shines so bright. You inspire me every day and I’m forever honoured to have shared this moment with you. Happy birthday Madiba. We continue to fight for you ✊ #NelsonMandela."
Peter Ndoro said:
"As we remember #Madiba’s birthday and celebrate #MandelaDay, I am reminded on this day every year that of the many things he was, he was a children’s president."
Nelson Mandela was remembered all over the world on the 102nd anniversary of his birthday, proving that his legacy will never fade.
