A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM MR. MANDELA
To Whom It May Concern:
The Nelson Mandela Museum is a not for profit institution established by the government of South Africa as part of a portfolio of legacy projects that seek to transform the heritage landscape from our apartheid past. At the same time, it is a resource for promoting economic development throughout tourism in an impoverished region of the country. This is the region in which I was born and grew up.
I was privileged to open the Museum five years ago, and continue to take a close personal interest in its work. In our view it is working hard to give substance to its vision of becoming “a living museum… that embraces development and inspires people through education, culture and tourism.”
We would encourage and value any assistance which you are in a position to give to the Museum.
I thank you.
Get well Madiba
Nelson Mandela Museum is touched and concerned about recent reports of Mr. Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela’s health condition. The museum views Mr. Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela as its patron and an initiator.
The ailing Soldier, Commander, Prisoner, Negotiator and a first Black President of the Republic of South Africa has proven beyond doubt to be a great statesman of all time. It is through his God given talent that he managed to inspire young and old, rich and poor from all racial groups towards Unity, Peace and Justice.
We wish Madiba a speedy recovery and a peaceful retirement with his family.
