Nelson Mandela Month 2018

 


Posted: 02 July 2018

Share:

This July, South Africa celebrates former President Nelson Mandela's birthday which is on the 18th of July.

The day has been declared “Nelson Mandela International Day”, but as South Africans we embrace the chance to  celebrate Nelson Mandela’s life for the whole of July. This gives everyone the opportunity to heed the call to action for people to recognise their individual power to make an imprint and change the world around them.  

Mr Mandela became South Africa’s first democratically elected president in 1994. As a champion of reconciliation, he was instrumental in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which was set up by South Africa’s Government of National Unity to help deal with the atrocities of apartheid. Before his presidency, Mandela was heavily involved in anti-apartheid activities.  Mandela served 27 years in prison, many of which were spent with other sentenced freedom fighters. While officially retired, he continued to voice his opinion on topical humanitarian issues and campaigns globally for peace, children and the fight against HIV and AIDS.

Government calls on all South Africans to contribute to the social and economic security of Africans, by living the values of our Constitution that provides for the rights of all people living in our country and the affirms democratic values of human dignity, equality and freedom for all.

 WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR MANDELA MONTH
Here are some ideas on how you can make a meaningful contribution this month;

  • Contact your local HIV organisation  and find out how you can help.
  • Help out at your local hospice.
  • Many terminally ill people have no friends or family who can visit them. Take a little time to have a chat and find out what they need.
  • Donate toys to the children's ward at your local hospital.
  • Tutor kids in a school subject you are good at.
  • Donate your old computer to a school.
  • Donate books to a school.

 

Find more areas where you can volunteer your services on the Nelson Mandela Day website.
