This year the South African Embassy to the Union of Comoros commemorated Nelson Mandela International Day under the challenging circumstances of a global pandemic that has seriously constrained the freedom and movement of people, the Covid-19.
The Embassy identified an event that would encompass the spirit of the day, honour the legacy of Madiba and also recognize his tireless work to improve the lives of children all around the world. We also made a conscious decision to take into account the need for social awareness around the COVID-19 pandemic and support efforts at fighting its spread in vulnerable communities.
