Christmas Wish List—13 lives saved!

people-1The 94.7 Highveld Stereo RAW Christmas Wish List always tugs at peoples’ heartstrings with the amount of good that Jeremy Mansfield and his team do.

Last year, we were again fortunate enough to benefit from the goodwill of corporate South Africa, from which we received sponsorship to mend 13 hearts.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all the companies and individuals that showed us such amazing support: SPAR, Emperor’s Palace, Southern Sun, Sony-Ericsson, First for Women Insurance, Netcare, Vodacom, Standard Bank, Ericsson, Coca-Cola Canners, the Carl & Emily Fuchs Foundation, Virgin Atlantic and the anonymous sponsors.

12 of our 13 brave little kids have been operated on and are doing well. You can all be proud that you gave the gift of life to somebody who would not have had the chance for a normal life without your help!

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.
