The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital Trust was established and tasked with raising R1 billion to bring this specialist paediatric hospital to life. Thanks to generous donors from around the world, from corporations to ordinary citizens and children, as well as various key partners, we were able to begin construction on 22 April 2014.
In December 2016 construction was completed and we welcomed strategic partners, key stakeholders and the media to celebrate this milestone. Currently, the Hospital’s Executive team is hard at work finalising clinical protocols, recruiting suitable staff, preparing staff induction, implementing business processes, and testing and evaluating safety measures. Once these are in place, the Hospital will be ready to receive patients without compromising their safety and well-being.
