Five children with heart problems have been given a second chance to life
7 Nov 2011
The media is invited to a function to celebrate the success of the heart operations to correct heart problems of five KwaZulu-Natal children thanks to a R1million donation made to the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Foundation (WSPCF) by the Anglo American Chairman’s Fund.
The function will be held at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital on Thursday, 10 November 2011 at 10h00 at the Staff Development Centre (Level 3).
Five KwaZulu-Natal children are now living healthy new lives after they received lifesaving heart surgery that was funded by a R1million donation made to the Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Foundation (WSPCF) by the Anglo American Chairman’s Fund.
The five children will be reunited this week at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital in Cato Manor, Durban to celebrate the success of their operations, which took place at the Netcare Sunninghill hospital in Johannesburg in July this year.
The five children are Deesha Roopnarayan (2) from Stanger, Asimbonge Mthethwa (2) from Vryheid, Minenthle Mlambo (2) from Harding, Asande Cele (6) from Pietermaritzburg, and Philisiwe Ndwandwe (6) from Zululand.
The Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital is KwaZulu-Natal’s only public sector hospital that handles cardiothoracic surgery for adults and children, and it services the needs of the whole province, as well as providing care for Eastern Cape patients from as far away as Umtata. The hospital focuses on children who have complicated illnesses, or conditions that require surgery. Its state of the art facilities and dedicated professional and academic staff make the hospital one of the country’s leading academic hospitals.
