The employees of FCC, Aspen’s active pharmaceutical ingredient facility in Cape Town, supported the Zamat Educare centre in Mitchells Plain on Mandela Day.

The 74 children at Zamat were treated to a day of fun during which they enjoyed their party packs, face painting and made posters in celebration of the event before sharing in cake and singing happy birthday to Madiba. The Aspen team handed over a range of donations to the centre comprising heaters, books and stationary, toiletries, educational material, mattresses, blankets, computer equipment, furniture, a first aid kit and a fridge. An additional gift included the provision of a first aid course for the care givers.
