The essence of Mandela Day – take action, inspire change, and make every day a Mandela Day – is more important than ever before.

Each one feed one

Communities across the world are affected by the spread of Covid-19, which has hit every economy, causing new social and economic challenges and exacerbating old ones.

But, there is hope. On a scale never seen before, individuals and groups are finding ways to help those in need of support. You can join us.

We call on you to be an active citizen in your community, individually or as part of one of the millions of groups getting together to start initiatives around delivering food parcels, making masks and protective gear, teaching online or making donations towards these efforts.

Mandela Day is celebrated on 18 July every year. We call on you to contribute to the Each1Feed1 campaign, join a community initiative or start your own.

And, most of all, stay safe.
