It took a year’s worth of planning and work but Jason Sisulu, the grandson of Walter Sisulu, and his fellow learners from King Edward Preparatory School collected and donated over 1,000 teddy bears to the WSPCCA.


“I wanted to make a positive gesture in tribute to my grandfather and helping the WSPCCA out with these bears was a perfect fit to what is already a glowing tribute to his legacy,” Jason said.

Thanks to Jason, Nkululeko Dlamini—the school’s head boy—and Sheldon Biassoni—the school’s deputy head for all their efforts.  The teddies are such a welcome surprise for the children who are recovering from surgery.


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.
