A Happy Mandela Day to All South Africans Wherever They Might Find Themselves Labouring Today.
Nelson Mandela International Day is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday. Each year Mandela Day challenges us to spend 67mins to create positive change and improve the world around us.
This year, South Africa will mark the centenary of the life of our Nation’s founding father Nelson Mandela under the theme: “Be the legacy”. The celebration is a major milestone in the incredible story of Madiba and our Nation’s journey.
“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela
