Tygerberg Hospital is the second largest in the country and cares for the most sick children per year in our province the Western Cape, almost all of them from indigent families. Despite the best attempts of the public healthcare system, this hospital's children is in great need of support.
South Africa is “ground zero” for the outbreak in sub-Saharan Africa and Tygerberg Hospital is at the epicenter of the response to the COVID-19 outbreak in our province, the Western Cape, while still combating the many other diseases and challenges rampant in our society.
Following the trends in other countries, we are afforded some insights into what this pandemic could mean for South Africa’s health systems and particularly our indigent communities.
We at the Tygerberg Hospital Children’s Trust, are rallying all our resources towards supporting Tygerberg Hospital in its ability to respond and minimize the impact upon our fragile communities and especially our vulnerable children.
In the spirit of togetherness, we are calling on your support towards our Specialized Care Fund, to invest in our response to the ravages of the pandemic in South Africa.
Together, we may be United for a Healthy Future.
