Description Children in wheelchairs are escorted by their carers around the grounds of Hilton College in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. The school grounds have been transformed into a festive playground for the 2000 or more children who have been invited to join Nelson Mandela celebrate his 78th birthday. The invited children (who are living with disability) come from disadvantaged communities across the county. The day-long birthday extravaganza is being held on the 17th July 1996 on the grounds of Hilton College near Pietermaritzburg in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. In advance of today's festivities, the children have been examined and treated by a team of orthopaedic specialists and physiotherapists. Many of them have been given life-changing wheelchairs. The event has the backing of the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund. Nelson Mandela was born on the 18th July 1918 in Mvezo, a small village in the Eastern Cape.
