    Mandela inspires from the grave


    Today we as South Africans celebrate Mandela Day by giving our time and talents for at least 67 minutes in honour of the late Nelson Mandela.


    This is the first Mandela Day since the former president’s death in December 2013.
    Even after his death, Nelson Mandela is an agent of change. He will always be referred to by South Africans as the father of the nation.


    Many initiatives has been planned for the day which is include visits to orphanage homes to hand out shoes to children, visits to schools to give them soup, professional nurses offering free-of-charge services (such as the taking of blood pressure, screening of blood glucose, and providing health education on various topics).
