Valentine’s Day—all about hearts!

clip_image002This past Valentine’s Day beat all our expectations. We embarked on a
campaign that put hearts (real ones) at the centre of Valentine’s Day, and reminded everyone about our SMS fund raising line.

We appeared on Sam Cowen’s Great Expectations and also on the SABC2, and received over 300 SMSs on the day, which was a great response.

Thanks to everyone involved in making the day possible.

Remember, SMS ‘heart’ to 38208 and you’ll make a donation towards saving a child’s heart. SMS costs R10, free & bundled SMSs don’t apply.


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.
