Freedom Park extends their well wishes to Ahmed Kathrada and his family following his surgery for a blood clot. Kathrada served on the Board of Freedom Park in 2006. We will continue to remember him in our prayers and take time to reflect on the ideals and values that he and his generation stood for. Kathrada is one of three Rivonia Trialists who are still alive today; the other two being Andrew Mlangeni and Denis Goldberg.
OVERVIEW OF THE PARK
Due to the 4th Annual Ungasali Storytelling Festival (general public is invited, R20 per person) the park will be closed for normal tours.
Also known as the International Working Women’s Day, March 8 is a special day for women. Celebrating this day every year is a call out to everyone around the world to stand up for the equality and freedom for all women, as well as their contribution to society. Paying a homage to the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women, the day brings an air of change with it.
A woman gives birth to a newborn, and is still called as the “weaker sex”. Isn’t it ironic? A mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend, a nurturer and a guiding light — she plays multiple roles!
Spend the day with women you are closest to you and make the day extra special for them. If you are miles away from them, a small text can make a difference and keep them smiling the entire day.
“When the world was created, you were created to beautify it and you have certainly done a great job because the world is smiling for you today”.
On behalf of the CEO Happy International Women’s Day!
