Nelson Mandela’s face is one of the most recognizable images around the world. Why? He spent three decades in prison for his political activism and became the first black South African president in 1994. His presidency put an end to the apartheid and opened the door to democracy in his country.
Mandela fought against poverty, discrimination, and racism. He also worked hard to expand health services, support education, and advocate for human rights.
Nelson Mandela International Day commemorates the unforgettable contributions he gave to South Africa and the world. It is celebrated on his birthday, July 18th to recognize Mandela’s values and his contribution to humanity.
