She was an ambassador for Nelson Mandela’s 46664 campaign, and is currently a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.
Leanne is the epitome of a strong, successful South African woman.
The phrase “To the bone” means total and complete…
Women are wholly committed to protecting their families, uplifting their communities and contributing to our nation, no matter the impact on their health.

This is why they’ve partnered with The Clothing Bank, and donating R2 from every pack of MenaCal.7™ bone health product sold, to the upliftment of women in South Africa.
In 1992, Amy became the first non-white miss South Africa. At the Miss World Pageant, she refused to walk with the apartheid South African flag. Instead, she carried a white flag symbolising peace. Amy has a deep passion for education and is the founder of Dial-A-Teacher, a homework assistance, research and study advice line for learners, used by 350 000 families across South Africa. “I only know one way to live and that is authentically,” Amy says. “Every day is a chance to interact with another human being in a meaningful way, to recognise the extraordinary in each of us.”
