Doctors, nurses and partners “boogie down” at the WSPCCA’s end of year cocktail party.

To celebrate what was one of the WSPCCA’s most successful years, we hosted a cocktail party for our staff and partners at the hospital’s cardiac boardroom where Lynda and Dr. Kinsley personally thanked everyone for their valued support and work that they had done in 2008.


“We raised R26m last year and completed 109 operations, which is a huge milestone for the foundation,” Lynda said.

“We can’t thank our partners and staff enough for their hard work, and we hope that 2009 sets some new milestones for us.”

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.
