|Nelson Mandela recently left this world, but before passing he enriched us as few have done before. Here at the Sickle Cell Cure Foundation, we are inspired and rededicated by his wisdom. His right thoughts and actions are a lesson to us all, however the following four quotations bear particular relevance to our work, and we share them with you in the spirit of celebration for his life, and humility in our strivings.|
|There is nothing I fear more than waking up without a program that will help me bring a little happiness to those with no resources, those who are poor, illiterate, and ridden with terminal disease.
We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.
Nelson Mandela: July 18, 1918 – Dec 5, 2013.
