Mandela Day is an annual celebration of the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela. This annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela is celebrated each year on the date of his birth, July 18.

The day is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy — it is a global movement to make the world a better place. This Mandela Day, several companies will join FoodBank South Africa to pack hampers for children at risk, abused women, and vulnerable households.
