WSPCCA Achievements

In July CEO Magazine hosted a very prestigious event to give out an award to South Africa’s “Most Influential Women in Business and Government”. Our very own Lynda won the award for “The Most Influential Woman in the Medical, Dentistry and Veterinary sectors”, which is an unbelievable achievement.

Dr. Kinsley has been appointed as a Consulting Editor of the World Journal for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery. What a great opportunity for him and the WSPCCA!

Hearty congratulations to Wilhelmina and Jan from paediatric cardiac ICU who both passed, with honours,  their 6 month certificated course in Paediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Nursing. Congratulations to ICU tutor Lorrainne Lubbe on these wonderful results.


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.
