International Nelson Mandela Day 2022

July 18, 2022

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela

Yesterday, we are one with the international community in celebrating International Nelson Mandela Day!

Thank you so much to the South African Embassy, Manila, and Her Excellency, Ambassador Bratinah Radebe-Netshitenzhe for partnering with us for 5 years in honoring Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy! We would also like to thank Her Excellency, Ambassador Akinyemi Farounbi of the Nigerian Embassy for gracing our event. Through your collective kindness and generosity, 500 families received food items, hygiene kits, and vitamins.

Children also left their handprints as part of the program with the hopes of cementing their mark in this world.

We are also grateful to the friends and partners of the South African Embassy, Manila for helping our community in Tondo:

Goldfields Philippines Corporation, William Chen, Ralph Lim Joseph, Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Embassy of the Republic of Lebanon, and Embassy of the People’s Republic of China

Together, let’s be active agents of change in our communities, and make every day a Mandela day!
