Like many, we are sure, we were very touched by the passing last week of one of the world’s great leaders, possibly the greatest – Nelson Mandela.
One of Nelson Mandela’s first actions on becoming president of the newly democratic South Africa in 1994 was to establish the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. He committed one third of his presidential salary for five years to ensure the continuation of the Fund as his charitable legacy for children.
“The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund is the embodiment of our belief that children need to live in an environment where they can flourish.”
Nelson R Mandela – August 2007
All those touched by Nelson Mandela and his death we would urge to make a donation to his charity – The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund – that does such excellent work.
The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund UK is a registered charity in the UK whose main purpose is to fundraise for and publicise the work of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund in South Africa. They also work with schools throughout the UK as part of their advocacy and citizenship programme.
