Day of Remembrance 2016

The 11th of November sees us celebrating the Day of Remembrance, which will honour the World War II service-men and veterans who initiated the fundraising for the building of the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in the early 1950’s.

The Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital has been established by the Cape Region of the South African Red Cross Society as an enduring memorial to the sacrifice, suffering and service for our people in World War II (1939-1945).

It is hoped that future generations, in their thankfulness for the benefits of this hospital, may be mindful of those in whose memory it has been erected.

The two minutes of silence is in thanksgiving for those who survived and to remember the fallen.

Date: Friday, 11 November
Time: 09h30 – 12h30
Venue: Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital Main entrance – follow signage to tent area
