Miss World's Beauty With A Purpose team has proven that this organisation continues to do the most meaningful work year in and year out when they packed nearly more than 350,000 meals in Gauteng and the Eastern Cape. At the Rise Against Hunger meal packing event, more than 250,000 meals were packed. Stop Hunger Now SA, Saira Khan, Chief Mandla Mandela and Julia Morley were once again joined by Miss World, Mr World and the Continental Queens of beauty. Rolene Strauss, Miss World 2014, and Miss South Africa, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters joined the team in spending 67 minutes of their time in honor of Nelson Mandela's legacy at the event in Johannesburg. The Miss World team then moved on to the Eastern Cape, where Mandela was born, to continue their goodwill mission. They will end their trip with a special lunch at the Mandela residence in Mvezo before heading back to their home countries.
