Mandela International Day


Nelson Mandela International Day, held on July 18th, was established by the United Nations General Assembly in recognition of the former South African President Nelson Mandela’s contribution to the culture of peace and freedom. UN General Assembly resolution called on people in their respective communities to take action and play a role in commemorating the International Day with practical action (community services).


Espinosa said, "Community service represents the true spirit of Nelson Mandela. It is dealing with people in a normal environment, focusing on action, rather than using high-sounding words. The food can connect diplomats, politicians and The United Nations together, because it allows people from different backgrounds and industries to sit at one table and chat together. This means we need to meet with you, listen to your voice, support and serve you, work with you, and work hard to build a safer, fairer and more sustainable world."
