July 18 is Nelson Mandela International Day

This Saturday July 18 is Nelson Mandela International Day. The day remembers Mandela's achievements in working towards conflict resolution, democracy, human rights, peace, and reconciliation. 

Nelson Mandela Day not only celebrates Nelson Mandela's life, but it is also a global call for action for people to do something that will have a positive effect on others in the communities around them.

 The UN therefore calls upon Governments, companies, NGOs, organisations and most especially, individuals to do something on that day in honour of Nelson Mandela in the fields of democracy, freedom, poverty, equality, diversity, reconciliation and respect.
