On many occasions Cuba and South Africa as well as other African colleagues have joined forces in pursue of common causes in IFLA Conferences. It has been a demonstration of common goals and feelings.
Today our feelings are just one when we think of the tremendous loss for human kind that represents President Nelson Mandela's death.
Please, give my personal feeling of sympathy to LIASA members and all librarian colleagues.

Dear Ms Terry
Thank you very much for your message of condolence and support for South African colleagues during this time of national loss. The international outpouring of sorrow and loss at the death of former President Nelson Mandela has shown how he belonged to the world, not just South Africa.
Cuba has been a long term friend and partner to South Africa, and will be represented by President Raul Castro at the state funeral. This mark of respect is highly appreciated.
