On Tuesday, December 10, 2013, as the world’s leaders gathered in South Africa to honor Nelson Mandela, the leader of an Atlanta-based world relief organization recalled her experiences with him. Dr. Helene Gayle is the C.E.O. of CARE. In a conversation with WABE’s Denis O’Hayer, Dr. Gayle talked about how Mandela inspired major progress in addressing poverty, disease and inequality in his country. She also remembered one of his major regrets, about an issue where he felt he acted too late.
