The Children’s Hospital Trust is an independent non-profit organisation which fundraises for the Red Cross Children’s Hospital and paediatric healthcare in the Western Cape. As a referral hospital patients include very sick children who need highly complex interventions to recover.
We have a special place in our heart for kids, so we’ve partnered with the Children’s Hospital Trust in an initiative that will see us contributing up to R1 million towards the Red Cross Children’s Hospital. Half of the contribution includes providing flights for children and their parents who cannot afford to fly to the hospital, as well as flying the hospital’s specialist doctors to hospitals outside of Cape Town.
It’s said that children recover more speedily when they have their loved one’s around, so the remaining half of the contribution will go towards a monetary donation of R500 000 for the expansion of the Parents Accommodation at the hospital.
Watch Esihle on her journey to recovery at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Trust and meet Mawande (pictured below) who also received treatment at the facility. Make your contribution today and help the lives of other little heroes like them take flight.
