South Africa's former President Nelson Mandela turns 95 years on 18 July 2013. The date not only marks his birthday, but also an annual international day in honour of Madiba. Mandela Day, which was officially declared as such by the United Nations in November 2009, is not meant as a public holiday. The day is meant as a day to honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela and his values, through volunteering and community service.
