The Children’s Hospital Trust was established in 1994 to advance child healthcare through the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital – the first stand-alone tertiary hospital, exclusively for children, in sub-Saharan Africa. The Hospital takes care of around 250 000 patients each year, most of whom come from exceptionally poor and marginalised communities. A third of the Hospital’s patients are younger than a year old.
As an independent, registered non-profit organisation, they rely on the benevolence of donors to fund the Hospital.
The Clothing Bank’s mission is to empower unemployed mothers through enterprise development, so that they can become financially and socially independent.
They believe that becoming a self-employed business owner is something everyone can do, irrespective of their education levels and resources, as long as they are self-motivated and well supported (mentally and emotionally). They have developed a holistic eco-system, which successfully engages families living in poverty to chart a path out of poverty. Their projects have been changing lives for the last eight years.
