Free the Children Founder Craig Kielburger delivers a heartfelt message from South Africa Craig Kielburger needs no introduction to the Canadian Living audience. Neither, for that matter, does the amazing hero the world so recently lost, Nelson Mandela. Craig, who, with his brother Marc, now writes a regular column in Canadian Living, travelled to South Africa to attend the memorial services of his personal hero. Part of Craig's intention, in addition to honouring the memory of his much-loved friend, was to provide a unique youth perspective and amplify the voice of young people in this historic time of change for the African continent – and our world. Here are some images taken by Free the Children photographer Michael Rajzman. But, first, we invite you to listen to this personal video message from Craig Kielburger in which he speaks directly to the followers of Canadian Living, and to the admirers of Nelson Mandela. Their shared message is touching – and timely.
