The legendary Nelson Mandela.

Liverpool charitable organization Mandela8 is marking Mandela Day this year by encouraging the public to take part in a whole week of activities aimed at promoting community cohesion and highlighting those who have been affected by the ongoing pandemic.

The group behind the new Nelson Mandela memorial in Princes Park had originally planned for a visit from Mandela’s family to mark its opening this July, but plans had to be put on hold due to both construction work and travel being so adversely affected by the lockdown.

Adapting to the country’s current situation, the charity decided they would instead use the week – commencing July 13 – to recognize not only the pain and suffering that local communities are going through but also provide a space for organizations to recognize the work their staff and volunteers have done to help people during Covid-19.
