Two unexpected surpirises

picture6We recently had a much-needed donation, which came in the form of toiletry bags comprising a towel and matching face cloth, soap, a tooth brush and toothpaste and a few other goodies—which is something that we are always appealing for when we have older kids and parents accompanying their kids to hospital.

We were so delighted and surprised that we totally forgot to ask for the donor’s name so until we can find out who exactly you were, consider yourself the WSPCCA’s angel!
Two of the Paediatric Cardiologists on our WSPCCA team—namely Drs. J. Harrisberg and K. Govendrageloo—will  look after 24 WSPCCA sponsored cardiac children free of charge in 2009, which represents a substantial saving for the Foundation.  You really are our two Santas!


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.
