“Dear police officer. Thank you for all the hard work on and off duty. We are so thankful to you for making our lives easier and safer. All of you make a big difference in our lives and in a sad world.”

This is just one of many heart-warming letters learners of the Sediba Academy in Kuruman wrote to over 400 essential workers serving at the front line of the Covid-19 pandemic.

These learners wanted to honour Nelson Mandela’s legacy by expressing gratitude to staff members of the Kuruman Hospital and the SAPS who sacrifice their time and safety to keep Kuruman safe.

Sediba Academy
Learners of the Sediba Academy wrote letters to thank frontline workers.

With safety measures in place to curb the spread of Covid-19, people were not able to do normal outreach projects on Mandela Day. in groups and crowds or to visit institutions and charities.

Instead, people associated with the academy surprised doctors, nurses, police officials, administrative staff, cleaners and security guards with a delivery of boxes filled with letters of appreciation.

The deliveries were made on 17 July.

Another learner wrote: “I thank you for the work that you are doing. God bless you.”

Each letter was attached to a packet of instant soup to warm the hands and hearts of frontline workers.
