The iconic statesman, born in 1918, would have turned 99 this year.  As a tribute to him and his legacy, individuals around the world are encouraged to spend at least 67 minutes doing something positive for their respective communities on Mandela Day. 

According to the United Nations (UN), individuals can make a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and step towards a global movement for good by devoting 67 minutes of their time – one minute for every year of Madiba’s public service. 

The message was simple: “everyone has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better. If each one of us heeds the call to simply do something good every day, we can live Nelson Mandela’s legacy and help build the country of our dreams. The baton of leadership has been handed over to us. It is in our hands now to make a positive difference." - Nelson Mandela Foundation

Mandela

This year, SSEM Mthembu Medical staff took small steps towards the larger leap of positive transformation by rolling up their sleeves and lending a helping hand to those in need.  Blankets and treats were delivered to GoodHope Ikhaya Lethu, a feeding scheme that was established in 2014. Donating blankets to children was SSEM’s way of helping the needy and giving back to the community. After all, blankets ward off icy weather and provide comfort and security.

Just as the day encourages people to take action, inspire change and to make every day a Mandela Day; SSEM Mthembu Medical advocates the same for its staff: to make every day matter by being selfless.

In the words of Nelson Mandela, 'there can be no greater gift than that of giving of one's time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return'. SSEM Mthembu Medical will continue to find novel and peaceful ways of improving the world and society around us.
