WHAT IS MANDELA DAY?
Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in recognition of Nelson Mandela’s birthday on 18 July, 2009 via unanimous decision of the UN General Assembly. It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made a year earlier, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said that “it is in your hands now”. It is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy. It is a global movement to honour his life’s work and act to change the world for the better.
TAKE ACTION. INSPIRE CHANGE. MAKE EVERY DAY A MANDELA DAY
The message behind Mandela Day is simple – each individual has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better. If each one of us heeded the call to simply do good every day, we would be living Nelson Mandela’s legacy and helping to build a country of our dreams. The baton of leadership has been handed over to us. It is in our hands now to make a positive difference.
At Flick, we value these sentiments and today our service Technicians did their part by tidying up Thuthuzele Care Centre in Marlboro as well as collecting and delivering food parcels and some much-needed cash for the Centre.
Thank you to everyone who took part!
