THE WORLD CONTINUE TO UPHOLD MANDELA LEGACY
This year, 2019, marks 10 years since the United Nations declared 18 July the Nelson Mandela International Day. The idea was to carry on Mandela’s legacy to care and contribute positively in the lives of those who are need. In the day, people around the world are encouraged to volunteer 67 minutes of their time to do public service. The 67 is the number of years that Mandela contributed in fighting social injustice.
Locals joined volunteers around the heeding to the call to impact the lives of those who are starving, poor, sick, vulnerable, orphans, physically disabled, aged etc.
Probably, the first democratically elected president of South Africa would have appreciated this gesture of humanity if was still alive. He died of respiratory complications on 5 December 2013. He was 95 years old.
