The World’s Loss

President Mandela was a remarkable example to us, to our foundation, and to the whole world thanks to a life imbued with courage, dedication and compassion. Our thoughts and prayers are with Graça Machel and President Mandela’s family.

It was an honor to meet President Nelson Mandela a number of times. We left each visit inspired and more optimistic about the opportunity to improve the lives of the poor throughout the world.

From prisoner to president, Nelson Mandela was tireless in his pursuit of equality and justice for all people.

President Mandela was a remarkable example to us, to our foundation, and to the whole world thanks to a life imbued with courage, dedication and compassion. Our thoughts and prayers are with Graça Machel and President Mandela’s family. We join with the people of South Africa in grieving the loss of this extraordinary and inspirational leader.
