Your money helps us to build state-of-the-art facilities, training medical professionals, provide vital equipment and support the patients and their families.

We raise money to enable the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital and paediatric healthcare projects in the Western Cape to provide world-class care for its young patients and their families and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness by:

  • Contributing to the rebuilding and refurbishment of the Hospital buildings;
  • Funding the most up-to-date equipment;
  • Supporting research into, and development of, ground breaking treatments; and
  • Supporting identified projects or programmes focussing on children and child health in the Western Cape

The Trust is funded from an endowment, ensuring that 100% of all donations received are used towards the projects and programmes we fund. Not a cent is used for administration or operational expenses.
