Aspen reaches more than 910 000 beneficiaries over 14 consecutive years

During 2024, we celebrate serving more than 910 000 individuals through our Mandelda Day flagship socio-economic development programme.

Aspen has a track record of improving access to healthcare to all patients but more particularly the most vulnerable among us. This spirit of care extends beyond healthcare to many socio-economic development initiatives. We have so many challenges to address, that it can seem overwhelming. However, with one step at a time, we can move forward. We remain committed to an unwavering humanitarian spirit and actions that demonstrate generosity, humility and care, and we encourage others to join us and help make a difference to vulnerable individuals across the world.


Aspen initially participated in Mandela Day in 2011 with a project that supported a small school for mentally and physically challenged children in Johannesburg. Such was the impact of this activity, that the programme rapidly gained support and momentum from our employees who have loyally continued to volunteer for this worthy cause across more than 40 countries and  six continents where we have a business presence.


About Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in recognition of Nelson Mandela’s birthday on 18 July 2009 by a unanimous decision of the United Nations General Assembly.

It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made a year earlier, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices.

It is more than a celebration of Mandela’s life and legacy. It is a global movement to honour his life’s work and act to change the world for the better.
