13."President Mandela founded the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund (NMCF) by pledging one-third of his monthly salary to inspire government, the private sector and citizens to respond to the plight of South Africa's children. The fund gives special attention to NOAH children — young people who are neglected, orphaned, abandoned and homeless." — Newspaper article
