Cabinet released a statement on the meeting that took place on 6 July 2016. The statement noted that Nelson Mandela International Day on 18 July is a reminder of our duty to improve the lives of those less fortunate than us.

"There is no end in doing better. We have to do it again and again." Said, Dr. Nelson Mandela. We encourage all South Africans to use 67 minutes of their time to engage in selfless service because together through a collective effort we can change the world.

This year the focus will be on education and literacy, food security, shelter and the environment. Cabinet calls on South Africans to Play Their Part by helping to establish food gardens, reading to children, painting schools and contributing towards the development of communities.
