Mandela Day 18 July 2013 | A celebration of life

Mandela Day 18 July 2013 | A celebration of life as a South African comrade

Thanks to all who helped to make our visit to the Macedonia Creche a success.  Thanks to the Gandhi Development Trust for an awesome day of celebration and the Gift of the Givers for food and sustenance.  Thanks to eThekwini for assistance in the preparation of a bio-rich vegetable garden, seedlings, tools and compost.  Thank you to the teachers and local community who made us welcome.  Thank you to Blessing for showing us your space. To Sven and the others who helped with physical labour. To Jono for the artwork and portrait. To Del and new friends for enthusiasm and ongoing support. I hope these photos tell a part of the story and help celebrate the life of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and the spirit of community.
