Mmofra Foundation wishes Madiba a wonderful 93rd birthday!

Madiba is Mr. Mandela’s clan name.  He is also sometimes called Tata, which is a respectful name for a revered father figure.

July 18th is International Nelson Mandela Day.

We also wish to highlight The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund which aims to build a rights-based movement that gives voice and dignity to the African child.

We learned that Mr. Mandela’s grandson Kweku Mandela is making a documentary film called Mandela’s Children, featuring the world’s most highly respected elder in conversation with his grand-children and great-grand-children.
