Description Children, dressed in cosy, new red outfits that they have been given, and accompanied by their carers await the arrival of the President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, at his 78th birthday celebration. More than 2,000 children who are living with disability in disadvantaged communities across the county have been invited to the day-long birthday extravaganza being held on the 17th July 1996 on the grounds of Hilton College near Pietermaritzburg in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. The children, their carers, Madiba and other guests are being entertained playing games, enjoying party fare, and attending a circus performance in a big top. The invited children have been examined and treated by a team of orthopaedic specialists and physiotherapists prior to the event, and many of them have been given life-changing wheelchairs. The event has the backing of the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.
