Partner breakfast update

We recently hosted our annual partner breakfast, compliment of the Protea Hotel Group, where we were very happy to report that we had an unbelievably successful and rewarding year—despite the global recession and the various challenges that came our way.

Yvette Lee from Leo Burnett, our advertising partner, updated us with about the SMS campaign and unveiled our two billboards, which will be making various appearances around South Africa over the course of the next few months.

Absa’s Nola Ashcroft also updated us on the rollout of an awareness campaign on Absa’s internal systems and encouraged other corporates to consider doing the same to help raise even more awareness of even the small ways that somebody can make a contribution to a very worthy cause. We also had the pleasure of introducing our two student doctors, Dr. Brink & Dr. Edwin.

Our sincerest thanks to all those who attended and we look forward to a 2010 filled with success!


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.
