Human Rights Day
On 21 March each year, South Africa celebrates Human Rights Day. Human Rights Day is an important public holiday in South Africa. Nelson Mandela declared the 21st of March Human Rights Day to honour all those who fought and lost their lives in the struggle for freedom.
Human Rights Day shines a light on our people who fought for their fundamental rights and courageously opposed the apartheid regime. This day is a reminder for South Africans to rise in unity and continue the fight for human dignity and safety.

Happy Human Rights Day. The EOHO campaign page has useful information www.eoho.info
In the words of Nelson Mandela
"There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return."
