As South Africans eternally grateful to Nelson Mandela for everything he has done for our country, we pay tribute. We hope that all South Africans strive to continue his legacy.

We would like to encourage everyone to help make Nelson Mandela’s dream come true.

“Nelson Mandela, the world’s greatest statesman, has a dream to build a 200-bed children’s hospital in Johannesburg that will serve children across Southern Africa.

It will address a great need as there are only four hospitals in Africa to serve nearly 450 million children. Millions of these children suffer from life-threatening illnesses and have little or no chance of receiving the specialised care they need.

The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital will ensure that no child will be turned away due to an inability to pay. It will be Nelson Mandela’s living legacy.

This world-class facility is being built with the support of donors from across the globe, in honour of Mr. Mandela, and R1bn is needed to make it a reality. Every citizen and organisation in the world is being called upon to assist.

You can make Nelson Mandela’s dream come true by SMSing the word GIFT to 40301 (T & Cs apply, SMS cost R20). For individuals outside South Africa, and organisations wanting to get involved, please visit for more details.

Tell your friends, share this page, and help us spread the word!!

The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital will be built on a site donated by the University of the Witwatersrand near the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital and Wits Medical School in Parktown, Johannesburg. Ground breaking will take place later this year. R250m has already been raised.”
