We at Inyathelo wish Archbishop Desmond Tutu a wonderful 90th birthday. Together with individuals and organisations around the world, we honour this great South African role model who continues to inspire us with his leadership, outspokenness and sense of justice. Inyathelo supports this powerful humanitarian leader’s vision of human-centred development, healing and reconciliation.
We also send our warm regards and good wishes to Mrs Nomalizo Leah Tutu, who celebrates her 88th birthday on 14th October. The contributions of the couple were acknowledged with an Inyathelo Philanthropy Award in 2010. At that time it was noted that: “This couple has certainly made an indelible mark and have left a strong and particular trail – not only of philanthropic activities but in so many spheres that continue to touch all of our lives.” See the Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsaXe_o9kNY
Thank you, Archbishop Tutu, for all you have contributed to our country, the South African people, and may you enjoy a happy celebration in the company of close family and friends. You live in our hearts and may your spirit of activism for the wellbeing of humanity live in generations to come.
