Commitment and Hope in South Africa After Two Decades of Democracy
“Justice Cameron leads by serving. He is a man of humility, intelligence and above all, profound humanity. All South Africans must be deeply reassured that such a man serves us all through his unwavering commitment to our Constitution – in his own words “a framework for a society in which mutual support and generosity are the key.
Beyond his work as a jurist, Justice Cameron extends his life of service as a champion of Hospice, a philosophy of caring and hope. As Patron of The Hospice and Palliative Care Association of which Hospice Plett is a member, he eagerly seizes every opportunity to promote the humanising message of Hospice. He is a brilliant and compelling speaker and anyone who has the privilege of listening to him will come away with a renewed belief in what he describes as “the practical possibilities of hope.”
