This month our Featured Charity is being presented by Joanita Theron of Creative Crochet Workshop.
This is a Charity near and dear to her heart and although it may not be a local charity for all of us, we hope by sharing it with our friends and family – the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital will receive the support it needs! Please read on to learn more about the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and how we can help. If you are unable to help personally, please share this with your friends online – you never know – you may reach someone who is able to make a difference locally! ♥ Rhondda
RED CROSS WAR MEMORIAL CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL:
Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital is South Africa’s only dedicated child health institution and offers a comprehensive range of specialist paediatric services to children. It is a centre of excellence for the training of all categories of child health professionals.
Children from all nine provinces of South Africa and from all over Africa are referred to the Hospital by referral hospitals, clinics and smaller hospitals. The hospital is active in paediatric outreach and support programmes across South Africa.
The Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital also performs research which impacts healthcare on a global level. Read more about the Global Impact.
Fundraising for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital is managed by the following Non-Profit Organisations:
The Children’s Hospital Trust was established in 1994 to fundraise for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – the largest stand-alone tertiary hospital in sub-Saharan Africa, dedicated entirely to children. The Trust is an independent, non-profit organisation that relies on the benevolence of donors to realise its aims.
The Friends of the Children’s Hospital Association is a non-profit organisation registered with the Department of Social Development and has been a support organisation to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital since 1978.
