WFUNA Remembers Nelson Mandela

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations.

Dear Friends,

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA), including its Officers, Executive Committee and member UNAs was deeply saddened by the death of Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first black president and Nobel Peace Prize winner for his fight against white minority rule. We would like to send our wholehearted condolences to Nelson Mandela’s wife Graca Machel and his family.

A truly global citizen, Nelson Mandela has since decades served as the Honorary President of WFUNA. Elected President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, he dedicated his efforts to dismantling apartheid and tackling institutionalized racism, poverty and inequality. We commend his tireless support to fostering racial reconciliation in spite of 27 years of imprisonment. Described as the “father of the nation”, he has received international recognition for his anti-colonial and anti-apartheid position through over 250 awards including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.

WFUNA joins the international community in commemorating Nelson Mandela’s devotion to democracy and equality and we honor his role as an exceptional leader and inspiration to those fighting oppression and deprivation.

 

Sincerely,

 

Bonian Golmohammadi

Secretary-General
