In a world filled with many selfish acts, it is refreshing to witness an act where someone -- or an organisation -- goes beyond their call of duty to help another without expecting anything in return. Indeed, there may be a number of these selfless deeds taking place which are not seen or promoted enough. Many of the people behind these good deeds are in fact people who do not actively seek recognition for their work and they continue their work driven by their passion, regardless of who may be watching. Upon reflecting more about the term ‘selfless deeds’, one may be reminded of the Dalai Lama XIV’s wise words saying that our prime purpose in this life is about helping others and if we cannot help them, we shouldn’t hurt them. This makes so much sense.
Advocate Thulisile (‘Thuli’) Nomkhosi Madonsela is no stranger to millions of people across the world, and she has been a part of South Africa’s political landscape for many years. Given her notable legal background and vast experience as a Human Rights lawyer and Equality expert, Thuli fulfilled an instrumental role in the Constitutional Assembly in drafting South Africa’s new Constitution during the period that saw Tata Nelson Mandela become the first black president of South Africa.
