Not only is the Miss World Organisation keeping up to its Beauty With a Purpose motto, Stop Hunger Now has also been doing its best to do exactly what its name suggests.

Before starting their tour, the representatives attended the Hockey World League Semi-Finals (World Cup Qualifier) that was being held in Johannesburg. As the representatives arrived, the Australian team were 2-1 down, in what was, a must win game. Upon arrival of Madeline Cowe of Australia, the team managed to score 2 goals in the last 2 minutes, winning the game. During the press interviews post match the captain described Madeline as a good luck charm and also asked if she would be available to attend their remaining 6 games they have in Johannesburg.

After enjoying a fun-filled match, the team started an action packed day by visiting Alexandra Township, Soweto, and the Apartheid Museum. The team visited the Apartheir Museum to learn about the legacy of Nelson Mandela. Chief Mandela also invited the Miss World Team to take part in the Mandela Challenge and by doing so, becoming a part of the Mandela Legacy that empowers all young people to be of service to their communities.
