Vodacom to the rescue

Valentine’s Day is all about hearts and the Vodacom Foundation took that quite literally by handing over a cheque for R4 million to the WSPCCA.

27 children will be saved as a result of this huge gesture of generosity.

But it didn’t stop there.  Vodacom also threw the kids a huge party at the Pretoria Country Club.  The bash featured a special show from Brian’s Circus as well as gifts in the form of t-shirts and caps.

Our sincerest thanks go to Mr. Mthobi Tyamzashe and the Vodacom Foundation.  The biggest thanks came through in the form of the 27 huge smiles on the faces of the kids who will be able to enjoy their childhood and make it to adulthood without any complications.

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.
