The Deputy Minister of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation, Ms Candith Mashego-Dlamini, joined by the Ambassador of the State of Qatar, HE Tariq Ali Faraj Al-Ansari, visited the town Mookgopong in the Limpopo Province, where they jointly spent 67 minutes of community work as part of Nelson Mandela International Day.
Mandela’s birth month of July presents an opportunity for all around the world to raise awareness and expand the reach of Madiba’s values – fighting injustice, practicing reconciliation and helping people in need. Accordingly, Deputy Minister Mashego-Dlamini and Ambassador Al-Ansari donated a number of items to the old age home.
As we continue to celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day and Mandela month, let us continue to reflect on justice, civil rights, combat discrimination, champion democracy, equality and humanrights. 🇿🇦
May the life, work and the legacy of Nelson Mandela continues to inspire us all and people around the world.
