July 18th is Nelson Mandela Day

In 2009, the United Nations declared July 18th as Mandela Day 


The year 2009 was a special one, that’s the year the General Assembly of the United Nations declared the date of July 18th as Mandela Day to honor Nelson Mandela’s lifelong dedication to helping the human race throughout South Africa and by extension the world. Also, July 18th is the date of the anti-apartheid icon’s birth and December 5, 2013 is the date of his death.
