Africa update

Here is a quick update on our progress in reaching patients from all over Africa.

SA is by far the biggest, but we’re hoping that with our skills and development initiatives, we can soon see regional cardiac “hubs” being set up and more operations being done in other African countries.

We’re also well on our way to reaching our 400th operation by the time Mama Sisulu’s birthday comes around!

A big thanks to all our sponsors and partners – big an small, who have helped us and continue to help us on a daily basis!

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.
