A royal visit

clip_image002We were very privileged and honoured to have a royal visitor to the WSPCF
recently—in the form of Kgosi Leruo Molotlegi, the king of the Royal Bafokeng Nation.

Kgosi visited us at our offices in Sunninghill and toured the CT ICU with Lynda as he met the doctors and nurses of the unit, spoke to them about their jobs and visited some of the children and their parents who were in the ICU at the time.

clip_image002[4]Kgosi also toured the wards and surgical theatres in order to get a feel for the
professionalism that has become synonymous with the WSPCF and its service deliver teams.

We are currently investigating the possibility of partnering with the Royal Bafokeng
Nation to provide diagnosis and intervention for children of the nation who are suffering from congenital heart defects. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with the Nation and its rulers.

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.
