Walter Sisulu Exhibition

parenting1The 12th of March saw the opening of the Walter and Albertina Sisulu Parenting a Nation exhibition, hosted by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the Sisulu Family and the WSPCCA.

On display at the exhibition were inspirational photos taken  during the lives of Walter Sisulu and Mama Sisulu  – used to raise awareness for the various charities that the Sisulu family supports.

As Madiba wrote in the foreword of the book In Our Life Time, ‘Walter Sisulu’s life embodied selflessness, the best, the noblest, the most heroic and most deeply humane. He had a passion for the youth and for justice.’ What better way to honour his memory than through a paediatric cardiac surgical centre for the continent of Africa? Innumerable African children, surviving into adulthood after corrective cardiac surgery, will one day be able to stand up proudly and say: ‘I was cured at The Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre for Africa’.


About The WSPCF

The Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Foundation (WSPCF) is a philanthropic paediatric cardiac foundation for Africa, focussing on delivering life-saving surgery for underprivileged children with congenital heart disorders from across Africa. It also aims to develop diagnostic and treatment skills amongst Africa’s medical fraternity and conducts critical research into paediatric cardiac healthcare. The cardiac surgery or intervention is undertaken at the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre for Africa situated in Netcare Sunninghill Hospital in Johannesburg, , as well as at Cape Town’s Netcare Christian Barnard Memorial and Red Cross Children’s Hospitals. The WSPCF was founded by Dr. Robin Kinsley in 2003, and was established as a living legacy to the late Walter Sisulu and his widow, Albertina, both of whom dedicated their lives to helping children in need.
