Nelson Mandela Marks 95th Birthday, Admirers Around The World Honour His Legacy Through Charitable Acts

As an ailing Nelson Mandela recuperates in a South African hospital, the world celebrates his 95th birthday honoring his legacy by performing 67 minutes of community service.


The United Nations declared July 18 as Mandela Day four years ago to honor his role in reconciling a country torn apart by apartheid. It started as a call to promote global peace and encourage community service.

His foundation made the call that people should take part in the public service as a reference to the number of years he devoted to public service. Already public personalities and school children around South Africa have obliged the call.
