Her Royal Highness, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, the daughter of King Hussein Bin Talal of Jordan and a global Messenger of Peace for the United Nations, has accepted an invitation to become the global patron for the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre for Africa.
Princess Haya’s involvement with the WSPCCA began in April 2008, when she first visited the centre as part of a legacy tour with President Nelson Mandela to raise awareness of paediatric cardiac health in Africa.
“When I visited the WSPCCA last year, I was immediately touched by all the good work that the foundation does. Mr. Sisulu’s legacy is so closely aligned with my mother’s legacy of caring for women and children, and I saw an opportunity to help make a tangible difference in so many lives,” Princess Haya explains.
“The WSPCCA is an organisation that reflects the values and beliefs that I hold dear to me. In addition, Africa is a part of the world that I have visited often, and I have come to love the continent.”
