CEO of the Nelson Mandela Children's fund Sibongile Mkhabela says R1.4 billion was raised to build the institution, ordinary South Africans also played a great part in donating to Madiba’s dream.
Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has promised to continue giving the hospital support.“I want to stand here in front of you and tell you that you’ve got that support and will get it forever.”
She has thanked Health Minister Motsoaledi for making Madiba’s lifelong dream come true.
“From the onset you’ve been a champion of the children’s hospital, we hope you will continue to mobilise your colleagues and that government to continue to support this initiative.”
Construction is complete but funding is still needed for the development and implementation of the crucial clinical programmes of this 200 bed state of art specialised hospital.
