Born and raised in poverty and unjustly imprisoned for more than two decades, Nelson Mandela overcame hatred, violence and oppression to become the leader of South Africa and an inspiration for the world. In this time of global pandemic, Nelson Mandela’s passion for education has never been more important.
INMED Partnerships for Children is humbled to participate in Nelson Mandela’s vision of a world that achieves equality, respect, education, food security, access to healthcare and equal opportunities for all people through education and compassion.
Help us celebrate Nelson Mandela Day on July 18 by sharing these special videos of our staff, volunteers and program participants offering tributes to Nelson Mandela; tips on fitness, healthy lifestyles and home gardening; and reading a children’s book about preventing the spread of the coronavirus, written by INMED South Africa Programs Director Unathi Sihlahla. Together, we can help vulnerable children and families survive the pandemic and thrive in its aftermath.
Nelson Mandela would be proud!
