Charity profile

The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital (NMCH) is the only dedicated children’s hospital in Gauteng; the second in the country and the Southern Africa region.

Initiated by the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, in line with its vision to change the way in which society treats its youth and children, the hospital admitted in first patients in June 2017 and has since treated thousands of state patients from Gauteng and surrounding provinces and even as far as Lesotho, Malawi and Somalia.

NMCH operates as a referral, specialist facility offering critical care to patients irrespective of their socio-economic status.

Nelson Mandela believed that every child should have access to quality healthcare which remains the ethos of the hospital. Therefore, no child who is appropriately referred to our hospital is turned away.

With your help, we can continue to provide world-class health care to our children - ensuring a better life for future leaders of this continent.
