Nelson Mandela Day in Berlin

Yesterday, on the 18th July 2019, the SA Mission celebrated Tata Madiba's 101st birthday by participating in the International Nelson Mandela Day. Now in its 10th year, it has become an irreplaceable tradition for the staff of the South African Embassy in Berlin to participate in charitable initiatives for at least 67 minutes and to honour Nelson Mandela`s memory, his life and struggle for equality and freedom in South Africa that has touched the world.

South African Ambassador Phumelele Stone Sizani and his team have once again supported the Bahnhofsmission Zoologischer Garten in Berlin. Working in shifts from 13:00 until 18:00 hours the South African staff prepared and served food to people in need. During a meeting with the Bahnhofsmission Ambassador Sizani handed over 140 Euros that were raised by the South African Embassy staff. Wilhelm Nadolny, the director of the Bahnhofsmission, said that with this money they would be able to provide food for more than 1,000 persons.

In 2009 the United Nations declared Nelson Mandela´s birthday on 18 July “International Nelson Mandela Day” and people from all over the world are encouraged to spend 67 minutes for social service – the number relates to the years that Mandela dedicated his life in the struggle against injustice and inequality.
