The WSPCCA has scooped two very prestigious awards this year. These include the “Best non-profit organisation” in the Mail & Guardian Investing in the Future awards and an award for “Cost effective community healthcare” from the Hospital Association of South Africa (HASA).

Lynda also made her way to Los Angeles, courtesy of Philip Kelly from Edwards Lifesciences South Africa, to accept an award of excellence grant of US$15,000 from the mother company for the outstanding work that the centre does for paediatric cardiac health in Africa.


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.
