For Every Life

Today we are proud to be joining the Mandela Family in launching a new campaign in the memory of Zenani Mandela, who died aged 13 in a car crash on the eve of the 2010 soccer World Cup. This global advocacy initiative, in partnership with the Make Roads Safe campaign, takes road safety for young people as its focus, and has been described by Zenani's grandmother, Zindzi Mandela (right), at the announcement in New York as a campaign "for public health, sustainable development and human rights". Mayor Mike Bloomberg of New York joined the Mandelas for the announcement, wearing the new campaign wristband and welcoming the Zenani Mandela campaign as "yet another positive step forward in efforts to address this leading cause of death and save more lives".
