Nelson Mandela International Day, also known as Mandela Day, is held on July 18th each year the day Nelson Mandela was born. The day acknowledges Mandela’s achievements in working towards conflict resolution, democracy, human rights, peace, and reconciliation.
The United Nations has joined the call by the Nelson Mandela Foundation to devote 67 minutes of time to helping others, as a way to mark Nelson Mandela International Day.
For 67 years Nelson Mandela devoted his life to the service of humanity — as a Human Rights lawyer, a Prisoner of conscience, an International Peacemaker and the first democratically elected President of a free South Africa.
