A Very Special Hospital Keeps Nelson Mandela's Legacy Alive

The Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital is only the second of its kind in South Africa, after the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town, and will have 200 beds available. It will finally realise the late president's dream to bring healthcare to Southern Africa's children regardless of race, socio-economic status or the ability to pay, and will provide specialised care which is not available at general hospital facilities. The hospital, owned by the Nelson Mandela Children's Trust, has the support of several corporates including GE, which donated $1 million through its foundation. More about GE in Africa in this BRIEFING.
