Solidarity prayer meeting for former President His Excellency Dr. Nelson Mandela – Madiba
On Monday, 1 July 2013, the African Women Australia Inc., (AWAU) hosted a solidarity prayer gathering for former President His Excellency Dr. Nelson Mandela- Madiba in collaboration with Her Excellency Koleka Mqulwana, High Commissioner of the Republic of South Africa. This solidarity prayer gathering brought together all African Communities in NSW and Australians who participated to show their solidarity.
It was an opportunity to pray for the well-being of Mandela but it also reminded us of the united Africa that Nelson Mandela constantly reminded us of in his active life. “I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses.” Nelson Mandela.
