Despite being upset at the Rotterdam ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament, Roger Federer carried out with his plans for visiting his RF Foundation in South Africa for one of his projects. Flying into Johannesburg, the Swiss maestro was hoping to meet Nelson Mandela, with whom he was linked to, regarded as the most trusted individual in the world among public figures.
Federer visited and spent time with children in the classroom and the communities where his RF Foundation works hard to enable children to take control of their future. Read more about the RF Foundation at rogerfedererfoundation.org.
From Roger Federer’s Facebook page: “I just visited some preschools in the Limpopo Province of South Africa – we support these via the Roger Federer Foundation. The kids and people here are incredible!”
