Mandela’s 95th Birthday Commemorated

The Nelson Mandela Center of Memory kicked off the Mandela’s 95th birthday celebrating activities. The Mandela’s birthday will be marked all over the world on July 18 every year, and people across the globe will use 67 minutes to offer their services to create a better world as part of the Mandela Day celebrations. The focus of the Mandela Day this year is poverty alleviation and shelter.
Sello Hatang, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Center of Memory, encouraged people to keep the Mandela’s spirit of helping other people alive. “One gift one can give to Madiba (Mandela’s nickname) is to educate children and improve the quality of education, seeing children getting the education they need,” Hatang said.
