Some 60 heads of state or government have announced they will take part in the memorial service or state funeral of Nelson Mandela, South Africa says.
US President Barack Obama, Francois Hollande of France and UK PM David Cameron will be among those attending Tuesday's memorial at a Soweto stadium. Most if not all the current sitting African Presidents and former Presidents will also be in attendance.
South Africa's first black president died on Thursday and the nation has held a day of prayer and reflection and many countries also declared day's' of mourning in honour of the great man Madiba.
Mourners in their millions visited places of worship and community halls.
At Soweto's Regina Mundi Catholic Church, a centre of the anti-apartheid struggle, the priest Sebastian Roussouw said the late leader had been "a light in the darkness".
"Madiba did not doubt the light. He paved the way for a better future, but he cannot do it alone," he said, referring to Mr Mandela by his clan name.
As the World reflects on the loss of a giant of our time New Generation Africa wants to reflect on a number of charities very close to Mandela's heart and hope the World will not forget now he is gone.
We are all responsible for keeping his legacy going by supporting his foundations:
THE NELSON MANDELA CHILDREN’S FUND
THE NELSON MANDELA FOUNDATION
THE MANDELA RHODES FOUNDATION
