MSH is deeply saddened by the loss of Nelson Mandela (“Madiba”), South Africa’s iconic first black president who fought to overthrow the oppression of apartheid. Madiba’s unwavering commitment to reconciliation, peace, and human dignity were hallmarks of his  legendary “long walk to freedom.” In 1993, he shared the Nobel Peace Prize. In later years after his retirement, Mandela revealed that his son and daughter-in-law had died due to HIV & AIDS and became a courageous advocate, defying the government’s denial of the epidemic.
