Whether children come from underprivileged backgrounds, or are lucky enough to have parents who can afford medical aid, the emotional strain on their parents is equal when they learn that their children are suffering from a congenital heart disorder and need surgery.
While the experiences are never pleasant, they have often stirred up a lot of generosity from many of the more privileged parents who have had their children saved at the cardiac unit in Sunninghill.
Many have indicated their willingness to help out financially with small regular donations to the Foundation, and in keeping with our drive to make donating easier and more accessible; we’re also launching the Mothers Support Group.
This initiative will give – what we call – Medical Aid Mothers the ability to make small regular donations via debit order towards the running of various support mechanisms and programmes at the Foundation.
