Venezuela's ambassador to Viet Nam, Jorge Rondon Uzcategui (left), is greeted by children as he arrives at the Leprosy and Dermatology Hospital in Thai Binh Province for International Nelson Mandela Day on July 19, which also marks the 94th anniversary of the former South African President's birth day.

Acting in the spirit of the moto "Spend 67 minutes to do useful deeds for needy people," visitors donated gifts to patients at the event organised by the South African embassy.
