Johannesburg - The Nelson Mandela Foundation is hoping
that volunteers around the world donate 67 minutes of their time, when the former
South African president turns 95 next week.
Mandela remained hospitalised on Wednesday in critical
but stable condition, for a recurring lung infection.
He was hospitalised 8 June.
Mandela turns 95 on 18 July and his foundation's Twitter
feed is asking people to join in the volunteer-day initiative, Mandela Day.
The Twitter feed often shares quotes from the man who
spent 27 years in prison.
One Mandela quote shared this week said: "Abject
poverty is demeaning, is an assault on the dignity of those that suffer it. In
the end it demeans us all."
