Injecting new life into paediatric care units in public hospitals across the nation, the Carte Blanche Making A Difference Trust has mobilised to help babies and children at Tygerberg Children’s Hospital in the Cape. The handover of a dedicated Newborn and Children’s Operating Theatre took place on the morning of 13 April 2018. Multi-millions was raised to refurbish this unit and to furnish it with essential equipment. This project would not have been possible without the initial generous capital donation from Choice Diamonds.

Some key Tygerberg Hospital staff talk to Carte Blanche about what the Making a Difference Trust's new dedicated paediatric theatre means to them and how it will greatly improve on the important work they do.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN TYGERBERG

Amidst a crippling infrastructure maintenance backlog at Cape Town's Tygerberg hospital, the Carte Blanche Making a Difference Trust has stepped in to help the hospital’s youngest patients. In April, the Trust with the help of its generous donors, delivered Tygerberg's first dedicated paediatric operating theatre.

In just ten years, the Campaign has raised over R130-million in funds and an estimated R300-million in kind. The funding has been entirely spent on the delivery of 18 hospital projects in 10 hospitals around the country.
