The Twelve Apostles Church in Trinity Students Organisation (THE TACTSO), one of the student structures at the University, also observed the Mandela Month by contributing to a Durban Home of the Aged.

The Deputy Secretary of the organisation, Senzo Luthuli, said on 21 July 2023, 22 members of the organisation visited John Dunn House, in Durban’s Wentworth where did several activities at the old age home. “We washed windows and cleaned the hall, cleaned the garden and the rest of the yard, moved garden pots, cleaned library, and play funny games with old people,” said Luthuli. Luthuli also said that they blessed the elderly “with our beautiful voices”. This was part of the 67 Minutes that South Africans are expected to dedicate to those in need during the month of July, which is regarded as the Nelson Mandela Month.

Luthuli also added that the gesture was appreciated by the manager of the old age home.
