Sphiwe Reggie Skhosana Receives $100,000 Grant at Annual Awards of Excellence
Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), a global nonprofit that creates, finds and supports programmes that directly improve the health and well-being of children around the world, honored Sphiwe Reggie Skhosana for his work in developing and supporting programmes that address the critical needs of children and families across South Africa. More than 1 200 RMHC leaders and guests came together to recognise Mr Skhosana at the annual Awards of Excellence in Rosemont, Ill. where he was presented with a $100 000 grant that will benefit RMHC South Africa.
“The impact that Mr Skhosana’s leadership has on South Africa is truly significant, and helps expand reliable and comprehensive care to critically-ill children and their families,” said Sheila Musolino, chief operating officer, RMHC. “We continually look for ways to improve our capacity to serve those who need it most and it is an honor to celebrate the extraordinary work that’s been done.”
The grant will be used towards the construction of the Ronald McDonald House at the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital which will open in late 2016.
“Our goal is to give as many families as possible the time they need to heal and cope together. We are thrilled to receive this grant, which will go a long way toward ensuring we are able to offer care, compassion and community to families during a critical time,” said Sphiwe Reggie Skhosana, RMHC South Africa Board Chairman. “Our mission is to help children and families in need, and we value our partnership with RMHC immensely.”
