Thank you message to Prince Albert and Princess Caroline. "We have fought for peace and reconciliation, for social justice for all man, women and children to live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. These are ideals I still believe in, ideals I still live for but the time has come for me to fully handover my work to my charities; the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund and the Mandela Rhodes Foundation. Memory is a vital force in the life of people and nation and can help unite a divided society, my foundation will continue to bring people together providing a safe space especially for those who disagree and talk to each other. Our love for children is undiminished their innocence and energy, their happiness and welfare must be protected and treasured, it is their laughter that I yearned for most while in prison, my children fund will continue to bring hope to children and young people. A new generation of African leaders is beginning to emerge on the African continent" - Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela also mentions the support and assistance Prince Albert and Princess Caroline gave to his charities through A.M.A.D.E and says they should continue the work and memory of Princess Grace in protecting and promoting children's rights globally.

History of South Africa: From 1902 to the Present

South Africa was born in war, has been cursed by crises and ruptures, and today stands on a precipice once again. This book explores the country's tumultuous journey from the Second Anglo-Boer War to 2021. Drawing on diaries, letters, oral testimony and diplomatic reports, Thula Simpson follows the South African people through the battles, elections, repression, resistance, strikes, insurrections, massacres, crashes and epidemics that have shaped the nation.

Tracking South Africa's path from colony to Union and from apartheid to democracy, Simpson documents the influence of key figures including Jan Smuts, Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko, P.W. Botha, Thabo Mbeki and Cyril Ramaphosa. He offers detailed accounts of watershed events like the 1922 Rand Revolt, the Defiance Campaign, Sharpeville, the Soweto uprising and the Marikana massacre. He sheds light on the roles of Gandhi, Churchill, Castro and Thatcher, and explores the impact of the World Wars, the armed struggle and the Border War. Simpson's history charts the post-apartheid transition and the phases of ANC rule, from Rainbow Nation to transformation; state capture to 'New Dawn'. Along the way, it reveals the divisions and solidarities of sport; the nation's economic travails; and painful pandemics, from the Spanish flu to AIDS and Covid-19.

A Plan for the People: Nelson Mandela's Hope for his Nation

As Nelson Mandela lived and worked under the unjust system of apartheid, his desire for freedom grew. South Africa separated people by races, oppressing the country's non-white citizens with abusive laws and cruel restrictions. Every day filled Mandela with grief and anger. But he also had hope--hope for a nation that belonged to everyone who lived in it.

From his work with the African National Congress, to his imprisonment on Robben Island, to his extraordinary rise to the presidency, Nelson Mandela was a rallying force against injustice. This stirring biography explores Mandela's long fight for equality and the courage that propelled him through decades of struggle. Illustrated in the bold, bright colors of South Africa, A Plan for the People captures the spirit of a leader beloved around the world.
