South African Baha'i wins Mandela Award

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Roslyn Mazibuko, Director of the Primary Health Care Services for the Northern province of South Africa and a member of the South African Bahá'í Community, was recently given the Nelson Mandela Award for Health and Human Rights.

In ceremonies on 29 May, Ms. Mazibuko was one of three receipients of the annual award, which recognises outstanding contributions and commitment to improving the health and the health care of disadvantaged populations. The award recipients are selected by a committee constituted in consultation with President Mandela.

Ms. Mazibuko's organization was instrumental in the development of a manually operated stone breaker, appropriate technology that was featured in a recent issue of ONE COUNTRY.[See "New hope for Africa's beleaguered stone breakers," July-September 1996]
