" Brazil: A story about Mandela
“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” Nelson Mandela (1918-2013).

People deprived of their liberty at the Irmã Imelda Lima Pontes Prison watch a presentation about the story of Nelson Mandela, who was imprisoned in 1958 in South Africa. “The idea is to carry out a different kind of activity to provide insights into a reality that many people out there are unaware of and draw attention to it,” explains ICRC detention delegate Mariana Barbosa.

In partnership with the Ceará State Prison Administration Department, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) carried out the activity "A story about Mandela" at the Irmã Imelda Lima Pontes Prison and the Auri Moura Costa Women's Prison, as part of the campaign to promote the Nelson Mandela Rules, which are universally agreed standards that guide countries on the treatment of people deprived of their liberty."
