Welcome to the Scottish Nelson Mandela Memorial Campaign

Nelson Mandela Scottish Memotial FoundationThe Nelson Mandela Scottish Memorial Foundation is raising funds for a statue of Nelson Mandela and an education project to remind Scots of their proud history of solidarity with the South African people in their struggle against apartheid, and to help future generations to stand up against racism and inequality.
