It’s Nelson Mandela International Day, a day of service celebrated on July 18, Mandela’s birthday.
Mandela, the former president of South Africa and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, died at 95 on Dec. 5, 2013. This is the first time the day has been celebrated since his death.
The celebration, first declared by the United Nations in 2009, is intended to honor Mandela’s legacy, encouraging people to volunteer and perform community service.
A spokesperson for the Nelson Mandela Foundation said: “Our message has to be this: Mr Mandela is gone, but his legacy lives on; Mr Mandela is gone, but the work he started will continue.”
