This Mandela Day, let’s fight poverty and promote peace, reconciliation and cultural diversity
This Mandela Day, let us fight poverty and promote peace, reconciliation and cultural diversity, especially with the current conflicts internationally and the unrest here in South Africa.
Nelson Mandela International Day or Mandela Day is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, Mandela's birthday. The day was officially declared by the United Nations in November 2009, with the first UN Mandela Day held on 18 July 2010. However, other groups began celebrating Mandela Day on 18 July 2009.
On 27 April 2009, the 46664 concerts and the Nelson Mandela Foundation invited the global community to join them in support of an official Mandela Day. Mandela Day is not a public holiday but as a day to honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela, South Africa's former President and his values, through volunteering and community service.
Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact.
The Mandela Day campaign message is, "Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We're asking you to start with 67 minutes. We would be honoured if such a day can serve to bring people together around the world to fight poverty and promote peace, reconciliation and cultural diversity," according to a statement issued on Mandela's behalf.
