即使曼德拉先生已離開人世,但他對人們的貢獻相信沒有人會否認的。

南非藝術家 Marco Cianfanelli 去年在 曼德拉先生 50年前被捕的地方製造了一件甚為震撼的藝術品。藝術品以一根一根鋼筋豎立而成。藝術家特意創製了50支形狀不一的鋼筋,以象徵這位領袖被捕50年。

藝術品的特別之處是當你站在不同角度,看到的都不一樣,而唯有當你站在它正前方,才會看得出曼德拉先生的面容。

This amazing piece of artwork erected by South African artist Marco Cianfanelli, stands on the spot where Nelson Mandela was arrested 50 years ago. The monument is constructed out of 50 separate steel bars to represent 50 years since the capture.

為嚮應曼德拉日的主題- 「以行動及轉變令每一天也成為曼德拉日」,基本教育部為Madiba推行了 「94+院校建設項目」。該項目是為慶祝曼德拉先生94歲的特別活動,亦為國家的學校建設作出了重要貢獻。
The Department of Basic Education reaffirmed the Mandela Day theme “Take Action. Inspire Change. Make Every Day Mandela Day” by launching 94+ Schools Project For Madiba, a unique way of celebrating former President Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday this year, while leaving a permanent mark in the country’s school infrastructure.
